Post Dickens, Charles: Our Mutual Friend (Illustrated). v5. 22 July 2012

"Our Mutual Friend" (written in the years 186465) is the last novel completed by Charles Dickens. It centres on, in the words of critic J. Hillis Miller, "money, money, money, and what money can make of life" (which is, incidentally, a quote from Our Mutual Friend, spoken by Bella at the end of book III, chapter iv.). In the opening chapter, a young man is on his way to receive his inheritance, which, according to his father's will, he can only claim if he marries Bella Wilfer, a beautiful, mercenary girl whom he has never met. However, before he can arrive, a body is found in the Thames and identified as him. The money passes on, instead, to the working-class Boffins, and the effects spread throughout various corners of London society.

Fully illustrated with the 40 original black and white illustrations by Marcus Stone.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 16 Dec 07

Recreated the book, preserved dashes, replaced capitals with italics where appropriate. Generally improved and cleaned up. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 29 Dec 07

Added the 40 original illustrations by Marcus Stone. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 22 Mar 08

Re-scanned a number of the illustrations which weren't very clear. Improved the layout and formatting of the book. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 22 Jul 12

Thoroughly proof-read, and several thousand errors corrected. Replaced all the illustrations with better quality versions. I'd now regard this as a "finished product"; if you find even the smallest error remaining in it, please let me know. Uploaded v5.
