Description

Charles Dickens, born February 7, 1812, was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world’s most well-known fictional characters and is generally regarded as one of, if not the greatest, novelist of the Victorian Period. His work was, and continues to be, highly popular. Many aspects of his stories and his characters have become embedded in our culture and continue to influence society to this day. He died on June 9, 1870.

The Charles Dickens Collection consists of material relating to the life and work of Dickens, such as original journal reviews and essays by critics and scholars, ephemera, portraits, and other types of items of this nature. Due to the numerous titles of serials represented in the collection, a list of titles organized in alphabetical order by country has been included to aid research. The vast majority of the serial publications in this collection were published in London.
