"Dickens is probaby best appreciated when short extracts from his humorous passages are read aloud - The selections from his novels are here set forth in chronological order for the purpose of marking the gradual change from excellent farce as in 'Pickwick' and the youthful extravagance of 'Nicholas Nickleby' to the maturer indictment of the law's delay and the insolence of office as in 'Bleak House' and 'Little Dorrit' - For the benefit of those readers who wish to be reminded of the intricate narrative portions of the novels, a brief outline of the plot of each one introduces the different s ec tions of this Anthology." Selections from: Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosity Shop, Barnaby Rudge, Martin Chuzzlewit, Dombey and Son, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Hard Times, Little Dorrit, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Our Mutal Friend, Tales and Sketches, The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
