AMERICAN NOTES [FOR GENERAL CIRCULATION] And PICTURES FROM ITALY

(London: Macmillan and Co., 1893).

AN VERY ATTRACTIVE COMBINED EDITION OF DICKENS’ TWO POPULAR TRAVEL NARRATIVES.
AMERICAN NOTES is Dickens’ rendering of his journeys in the United States. He went as far West as St. Louis and describes the people and characteristics of many of the cities and towns along the way, including Boston, Philadelphia, New York and Cincinnati.
PICTURES FROM ITALY is a beautiful reminiscence of a tour through Italy as it could only be told by one of England’s greatest writers. Dickens provides for the armchair traveler a descriptive journey through some of the most scenic areas and cities in Italy and France.
Dickens’ poetic and descriptive style, made famous in his many novels, is well suited to these two travel logs. Item #27555
