The Old Curiosity Shop
Charles Dickens
Nelson and Sons
Circa 1900
Dark blue cloth bound pocket sized edition with gilt title to spine.
Antique early edition of Charles Dickens classic featuring illustrations from original publication. No publication date but estimated at 1900. No dust jacket, blue cloth bound with gilt titles.
The Old Curiosity Shop was first printed in book form in 1841, and tells the story of orphan Nell Trent who lives with her grandfather in his curiosity shop of odds and ends.
To save Nell from poverty, her grandfather gambles and borrows money in an attempt to save her a nest egg. Obviously this backfires horribly and the pair are evicted from their home and forced to live as beggars. In true Dickensian style, things don't end there, they go from bad to worse with the introduction of more despicable characters and evil machinations.
A tragic tale of determination against life's odds.
