My Early Times, by Charles Dickens, hardcover in slipcase (very good condition), Folio Society
This covers Dickens recollections from childhood to manhood, his writings, his friends and family. “The autobiography that is absolutely truthful in every crucial respect has, after all, still to be written. Judged by the standards of the twentieth century, as well as by those of the nineteenth, Dickens is, on the whole, as honest as we have any right to expect – and the pleasure that he gives to the reader, in the glorious abundance of his recollections, is beyond comparison.” – Peter Rowland’s Introduction. Beautiful illustrations inside and extensive notes and bibliography.
