Synopsis
"You are to understand, Mr. Pip, that the name of the person who is your liberal benefactor remains a profound secret." The orphan Pip could hadly believe his ears. The direction if his life had changed in an instant, from blacksmith to gentleman. But why? Who was behind his sudden great expectations? And what would happen next? Charles Dickens wanted to keep you, his reader, in suspense, and for a very practical reason. Great Expectations originally appeared in weekly installments in a magazine. By ending every installment at a cliff-hanging moment, Dickens made sure eager readers would rush to buy each new issue. And the magazine became a runaway best seller. More than 130 years later, Great Expectations remains one of the best-loved stories of all time, a masterpiece deserving to be included in the 100 greatest books ever written. Bound in genuine leather with accents of 22 karat gold. What's more, this Easton Press Deluxe Edition includes features that add to your appreciation of the novel itself, enhancing your pleasure as you read. In John T. Winterich's engaging introduction, you'll discover that Dickens originally wrote an entirely different ending for Great Expectations, but a friend persuaded him to revise it. Read the original ending on page 6 and come to your own conclusions. The wonderfully readable typeface design specially chosen for this edition has been admired since the 18th century and was popular in Dickens' day. Lively pen-and-ink drawings, 36 in all, draw your eye into each chapter as they capture the essense of the pages ahead. These drawings and the full-color, full-page illustrations found throughout the book were created by the gifted painter, Edward Ardizzone, whose works are included in the permanent collection of London's famous Tate Gallery. These are just some of the many features that will add to your enjoyment as you savor the exciting adventures of the orphan Pip, the eccentric Miss Havisham, and Estrella. [Written by Peter Sydney]
