The Illustrator is identified as Kate, Dickens' youngest daughter, in the editor's note, dated 1882 and signed M.D. Lovely green floral endpages. A lovely period gift inscription (from Jo) to his Aunt is elegantly penned within the first flyleaves and a calling card (Master Joseph x (?)) is straight pinned to the inscription. (Perhaps Auntie wished to remember that Jo had gifted her the book?) Quotes from Dickens works on the left, with only a few entries made in the frames on the right. The editor is credited as "His Eldest Daughter" (Mary AKA Mamie) the Illustrator as "His Youngest Daughter," (Kate Dickens.) A lovely addition to any collection.
