A friend bought me a book from an estate sale.
Pretty good condition of a book since this one is from 1906.

I've read enough blurbs of Chesterton on Dickens over the years that it will be nice to read his views in a more developed context.

From the title, one concludes you have the first American edition, from Dodd, Mead & Co. British title was CHARLES DICKENS, simply. Published by Methuen.

The American title was reissued in 1924 as CHARLES DICKENS, LAST OF THE GREAT MEN.

Then there was APPRECIATIONS AND CRITICISM OF THE WORKS OF CHARLES DICKENS, 1911, British edition from J.M. Dent & Sons, Ltd.
American edition, E.P. Dutton & Co., same year, and oddly published with 2 titles in the same volume. One can choose APPRECIATIONS & CRITICISMS or CRITICISMS & APPRECIATIONS. One on title page, FC and spine, the other on the intro page.

It's a great little book. Volume XV of the Collected Works has it together with the Appreciations, as well as The Victorian Age in Literature. :fyi:

I haven't been able to read all of the Appreciations because I haven't read all of Dickens yet. I won't read the Appreciation until I finish the work it appreciates. Then the Appreciation becomes a little extra treat.

I skipped Vol. XV, for obvious reasons. So I passed on the little intro/notes I assume it contained.

that I found my set of the Complete Dickens today. And wasn't even looking for it.
