Charles Dickens's England


This book is an absolute must for all fans of Dickens and can only add to the delight of readers by experiencing the actual settings which Dickens employed so remarkably. The 272 page coffee book featuring over 600 special commission photographs by Russell Burden looks at 40 locations not featured in the DVD.

From Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight, Rochester & Chatham to Broadstairs, Folkestone, Bury St Edmunds, Barnard Castle, Bath, Twickenham; from St George’s Hall in Liverpool to Chigwell in Essex which Dickens described as ‘the greatest place on earth’; as well as a rich profusion of buildings and settings throughout London - this book features well over one hundred locations. Many of those illustrated, such as the interiors of 58 Lincoln’s Inn Fields where Dickens first read in public as well as Gad’s Hill in Kent, the last in the long list of his homes, are simply not open to the public and have rarely been photographed.
