The 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens is this Tuesday, February 7. At Special Collections, we are celebrating with a small exhibit on this beloved author’s life and works. The exhibit features first editions of A Christmas Carol and Great Expectations, Nicholas Nickleby in parts, and an original steel printing plate used to produce an illustration in the first edition of David Copperfield.
“The World of Charles Dickens” will be on display all month in Special Collections’ lobby area. The exhibit was curated by Lisa Jackson New, an intern at Perry Special Collections.
