RE-posted in the "A Christmas Carol" forum
Hello, I am new to this site. I would like to know if Charles Dickens every did any art work? I have uncovered, under a very old painting, an etching signed C Dickens. It would be nice if it was Charles but of course it could be any old C Dickens! It is entitled "Old Village Teahouse Southborough." I have some very old Dickens books with illustrations all done by other people. Does anyone have a copy of his signature? Can anyone help me please?
when was he born?
I am an avid, though amateur, vintage article collector, mainly of the mildly eclectic. I recently received, as a gift, an early edition of the book David Copperfield with a printed copywrite date of 1847. The book also has an inscription with date (1847) by its original owner. How is this possible? All things I have read, in attempts to find out whether this is a book from the first 'collected' publishing, say the story David Copperfield is from Dickens' published entries of the story between the years 1848 and 1850. Please respond quickly, as this contradiction is driving me insane.
his work is the best i have ever read.
