Dickens, Charles: Little Dorrit (Illustrated). v6. 20th Aug 2009
"Little Dorrit" is, along with "Bleak House" and "Our Mutual Friend", one of Dickens' last three great novels, and is one of his most important works. It is an attack on the institution of "debtors prisons" (The Marshalsea prison, which features heavily in the book, is where Dickens' own father was imprisoned for debt when Dickens was a child) and a biting satire of the over-bureaucratic institutions of government, and the injustices of the class system. The fact that most of the issues that Dickens highlights in the novel have long since passed into history does not negate the important of the work.
Fully illustrated with the original black and white illustrations by Phiz.
EDIT: 5 Jan 08
Converted words in capitals to italics, where appropriate, to match the printed book. Added the original illustrations. Created a proper MobiPocket format book with full-sized pictures, library information, table of contents link, etc. Uploaded v3.
EDIT: 6 Jan 08
A couple of the illustrations accidentally got missed out of the previous version; apologies. Uploaded v4.
EDIT: 18 Mar 08
Recreated the book to fix a problem with paragraph breaks. Rescanned a couple of the illustrations which weren't previously very clear. Uploaded v5.
EDIT: 16 Nov 08
Thoroughly proof-read against a printed edition. Many hundreds of errors corrected as a result; the book is now in a pretty good state. Uploaded v6.
