Τhe purpose of this book is not to gather the original illustrations of David Copperfield, rather to follow them as they become a gate to the novel itself, this way fulfilling their own intention.
If you have read David Copperfield, this book will help you recall it, and if you haven’t, the combination of the illustrations with chapter excerpts provides a great introduction to the power of Dickens’ writing, the characters and the most important themes and developments, since Phiz co-operated with the author in what and how should be selected.
Τhis anthology is indeed a realization of what Dickens himself thought as crucial for a possible overview and presentation of his favorite novel.
