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

"Our Mutual Friend" (written in the years 1864–65) 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: 29 Dec 07

Added the original illustrations by Marcus Stone. Created a proper Mobipocket version, with full-sized pictures, library information, working table of contents link, etc. 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.

Hi Harry,

Many, many thanks for all your work on these. Much appreciated.

This one seems to have a different style of cover to your other Dickens - garish blue with very visible compression artifacts around the text. Is something broken, or was this one just produced earlier than the others?

Out of curiosity, what sort of software setup do you use to produce these at such a prodigious rate? I'm feeling inspired to give it a go, but using Sigil in its current state is like pulling teeth. (I'm normally more the raw-markup type.)

This is an "earlier generation" of my eBooks. I've not yet proof-read it, and brought it up to the standard of the others. It's on "the list".

I create all my eBook with the "Book Designer" program. Export from that to HTML, use the HTML to produce a Mobipocket book, and then convert the Mobi to ePub with Calibre.
