DICKENS, Charles (author). Doris DICKENS (editor). Oliver Twist. London; Michael Joseph. 1962.
8vo. Original rose pink cloth with black panel to spine lettered in gilt, top edges stained pale green, in pictorial dustwrapper with wrap-around design by Ronald Searle; pp. [iv], 5-353 + [i]; with frontispiece, title vignette, and 9 further full-page illustrations in line by Searle; a fine and uninscribed copy, protected by an equally fine, unclipped dustwrapper (21s).
