Re-told by

His Grand-daughter

Mary Angela Dickens and Others

Signed Limited Edition

Christmas 1911



Children's Stories From Dickens Re-told by His Grand-daughter Mary Angela Dickens and Others is for sale. Children's Stories From Dickens is a very scarce Charles Dickens book signed his 5 granddaughters and limited to just 500 signed copies. Children's Stories From Dickens was published by Raphael Tuck and Sons Ltd in 1911 and contains the following 15 Charles Dickens children’s stories taken from Charles Dickens novels.


Children’s Stories From Dickens has been beautifully illustrated with 12 full colour full page illustrations and many other black and white illustrations in the text throughout by Harold Copping.


The original publisher’s blue boards to Children’s Stories From Dickens are bevelled and the front board has a large and stunning gilt decoration with the title above also in gilt. The spine has the title Children’s Stories From Dickens By Mary Angela Dickens and Others.


The Children’s Stories From Dickens original binding are in incredible collectable condition with the gilt being very bright and crisp to both the front board and to the spine.  However, there are slight corner knocks; knocks to the top and bottom of the spine; and slight wear to the plain back board.  


There are 148 numbered pages and 4 pages of advertisements to the end of the book, all edges gilt. The front pastedown has a very attractive small Charles Dickens label applied, possibly by the publishers Raphael Tuck and Sons Limited. The pages are in Very Good condition with some light foxing throughout, however the plates which are on better quality glossy paper have stood the test of time and are free of foxing; however one plate is partially detached from the top of the book in the gutter, but is still very firmly bound-in and this is mentioned for completeness.


The Limitation Page has the number of this book written in pencil to the top right hand corner and reads number 314 out of a run of just 500 signed copies. This Limitation Page then reads: “Charles Dickens Centenary The Daily Telegraph Fund This Edition is limited to numbered 500 Copies with the signatures of the five grand-daughters of Charles Dickens for whom the fund was raised.”  Underneath this statement are the signatures of Charles Dickens’ five grand-daughters.
