Folio Society, 1989. Hardback. 256pp. Quarter green cloth over pictorial boards. Brown endpapers and top edge tinted brown. Original green slipcase. Arthur Hayward's "Dickens Encyclopaedia" was first published in 1924 and therefore contains a number of references - in particular to theatres, inns, shop premises and domestic appliances - which have since become outdated. Most of these were retained for this edition for their charm and the light they cast on the England of the 1920s. An extremely useful and handy reference book. Line drawings by Charles Keeping. Also illustrated with photographs. Book in fine condition and with little sign of being used. Slipcase near fine with only very superficial evidence of use. Small band of colour fade around the open edge.
  • Our price: £20.00
