A Tale of Two Cities

by Charles Dickens

Part of the Nonesuch Dickens Series

A Tale of Two Cities Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities is Dickens' masterful portrait of Paris and London. The shadow of the guillotine's blade hangs over two reputable men, one French, one English, as they compete for the love of Lucie Manette...Based on the world-famous Nonesuch Press edition of 1937, the text is taken from the 1867 Chapman and Hall edition, which became known as the Charles Dickens edition, and was the last edition to be corrected by the author himself. The Nonesuch edition contains illustrations selected by Dickens himself, by artists including Hablot Knight Browne ('Phiz'), George Cruikshank, John Leech, Robert Seymour and George Cattermole.The new Nonesuch Dickens reproduces the original elegance of these beautiful editions. Books are printed on natural cream shade high quality stock, are quarter bound in bonded leather with cloth sides, include a ribbon marker and feature special printed endpapers. Each book is wrapped in a protective, clear acetate jacket.

A Tale of Two Cities Press Reviews
