About This Item

HATFIELD BOOKS AND MEMORABILIA, a FIVE STAR SELLER, presents the "Illustrated Library Edition" of CHARLES DICKENS' A CHILD'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND; AMERICAN NOTES; PICTURES FROM ITALY; and MISCELLANIES" in an unusual reprint edition published in St. Louis. GOOD/NP. Between 1861 & 1874, Chapman & Hall added 15 illustrations to their "high quality.. edition of Dickens' works." This is a reprint of that edition from the early Twentieth Century. 5 ½ x 8", 906 total pages (each story paginated separately), this is a plain blue hardback with particulars in yellow on spine only and no dust jacket; on the spine says "library edition", on title page says "illustrated library edition." Gold gilt on top page edges, several instances of uncut pages, Good condition, cover trying (so far unsuccessfully) to separate. No dust jacket.


IF you look at a Map of the World, you will see, in the left-hand upper corner of the Eastern Hemisphere, two Islands lying in the sea. They are England and Scotland, and Ireland. England and Scotland form the greater part of these Islands. Ireland is the next in size. The little neighbouring islands, which are so small upon the Map as to be mere dots, are chiefly little bits of Scotland, - broken off, I dare say, in the course of a great length of time, by the power of the restless water.
