Barnaby Rudge

£19.99

Product description

This was the first of Charles Dickens' two historical novels ('A Tale of Two Cities' being the other), and originally appeared in weekly instalments (as did 'The Old Curiosity Shop'). It is largely set during the Gordon Riots of 1780, the English upheavals mirroring the contemporaneous French Revolution which is the background of the "Two Cities". The plot and the political upheaval are woven together from the point of view of Barnaby himself, a simpleton with a pet raven called Grip, who collides with the other characters and events throughout the book. It is one of the less popular or well-known of Dickens' works, but a good read nonetheless.

Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870), English writer and social critic, created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

Our book is in good condition, and comes with a cardboard slipcase which is somewhat worn at all edges and corners, but unbroken. The book itself is bound in maroon leatherette with a thin line impressed border to the front cover, and title etc in gilt on the spine. It has been protected by a thin plastic cover, and shows almost no signs of wear externally apart from some very minor bumping to the corners of the front cover. Inside, the book is firmly bound, clean and appears unused. Page tops are gilt. A very nice copy.
