              The Complete Works of Charles Dickens (in 30 Volumes, Illustrated): A Child's History of England (Hardback)

              By Dickens, Charles

              It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized... episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains A Child's History of England, which was serialized from 1851 to 1853 in the weekly magazine Dickens edited, Household Words. Dedicated to his own children, it tells the story of England from ancient times through the ascension of Queen Victoria, and was considered so authoritative that it was part of the school curriculum in England through World War II.

This volume contains The Uncommercial Traveller, a collection of short stories first published by Dickens in his own journal, All the Year Round, in the early 1860s. Excellent examples of the author's good humor and propensity for satire, they are also beloved by readers for their autobiographical elements, offering readers a peek at the man behind the stories.

It features some of Dickens's earliest work, and was so popular that the author himself was cheerfully known as Boz to his readers for the rest of his working life.

              This classic survey of one of the most dramatic eras in American history is most notable, perhaps, for the insight it offers into the mindset of the era itself. First published from 1893 through 1906, in the immediate aftermath of the events it covers, it was criticized even then... for the author's clear bias-Rhodes believed it was a mistake to have given black men the right to vote after the Civil War. Today, it remains a fascinating look at the times through a prism that is itself of historical interest. This eight-volume set is a replica of the 1920 new edition. Volume VIII covers: [ the railroad strike of 1877 [ the Molly Maguires [ the assassination of Garfield [ the Chinese question [ the Mugwump Campaign [ the Anti-trust Act of 1890 [ the Homestead Strike [ financial crisis of 1893 [ the Chicago railway strike [ and much more. After earning a fortune in iron, coal, and steel, American author JAMES FORD RHODES (1848-1927) retired to write about history, for which he won the Loubat Prize from the Berlin Academy of Sciences (1901) and the gold medal from the National Institute of Arts and Letters (1910). He is also the author of the single-volume History of the Civil War, 1861-1865 (1918), available from Cosimo.

Rife with both social satire and romance, it is beloved by Dickens fans to this day.
