THE 'HE Centenary Edition comprises the whole of the novelist's writings, including, of course, all those of which the Publishers still hold the copyright and can alone publish, together with his recently discovered contributions to Household Words and other periodicals. All the prefaces, dedications, and notices which appeared in the various editions during the author's lifetime are given, together with all the original illustrations to which he gave his approval.
Each work is prefaced by a short bibliographical note.
The illustrations are a special feature. These are reproduced by a special new process from the original steel plates and wood blocks, and number close upon 700, forming in themselves a unique gallery of the finest examples of the work of such famous artists as Hablot K. Browne (Phiz), George Cruikshank, Daniel Maclise, R.A., Marcus Stone, R.A., . Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A., John Leech, Sir John Tenniel, Clarkson Stanfield, R.A., Fred Walker, George Cattermole, Richard Doyle, J. Mahony, G. J. Pinwell, Sir Luke Fildes, R.A., and others, whose work, done under Dickens's own supervision, must therefore necessarily depict the novelist's ideals of his characters.
The type employed is large and artistic, the paper of extra superfine quality, the binding handsome, and the price 3s. 6d. per volume. No effort has been spared to make the "Centenary" Edition deserving to grace any library, and to be in every way worthy of the notable event it serves to celebrate.
