Happy Birthday Charles Dickens

Today (February 7, 2012) is the 200th anniversary of Dickens’ birth. To show a little love for Dickens, I went up to the Rare Book Room and took photos of 2 items from the Gleeson Library Rare Book Room collection. The first two photos are illustrations from Bleak House and the third is a photo of the first edition of Bleak House in original unbound parts. Both of these items and others by Dickens are available to view in the Rare Book Room – please stop by and take a look!
