Book lovers will go wild over this A-Z guidebook to Dickens-related destinations. It takes travelers (including the armchair kind) to Mr. Pickwick's Bath, David Copperfield's Yarmouth, Nicholas Nickelby's Yorkshire, and, of course, the London of so many Dickens novels. Filled with a mix of old-time illustrations and up-to-date photographs, it also covers places associated with Dickens himself, including his birthplace, the site of the blacking factory where he worked as a child, his favorite vacation spots, and his final home in Kent.
