Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age.His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens has been praised by fellow writers-from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell, G. K. Chesterton and Tom Wolfe-for his realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism.About the Series: "Christmas by Dickens"Volume 1: The Christmas Books -Annotated by Adolphus William Ward A Christmas Carol [1843] The Chimes [1844] The Cricket on the Hearth [1845] The Battle of Life [1846] The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain [1848]Volume 2: Christmas Stories (from "Household Words" and "All the Year Round") - Annotated by George OrwellA Christmas Tree [1850] What Christmas is as we Grow Older [1851] The Poor Relation's Story [1852] The Child's Story [1852] The Schoolboy's Story [1853] Nobody's Story [18 -] The Seven Poor Travellers [1854] The Holly-Tree [1855] Wreck of the Golden Mary (with Wilkie Collins) [1856] The Perils of Certain English Prisoners (with Wilkie Collins) [Household Words, 1857] Going into Society [1858] A Message From the Sea [1860] Tom Tiddler's Ground [1861] Somebody's Luggage [1862] Mrs. Lirriper's Lodgings [1863] Mrs. Lirriper's Legacy [1864] Doctor Marigold [1865] Mugby Junction [1866] No Thoroughfare (with Wilkie Collins) [1867]

Nineteenth-century British periodicals for girls and women offer a wealth of material to understand how girls and women fit into their social and cultural worlds, of which music making was an important part. The Girl's Own Paper, first published in 1880, stands out because of its rich musical content. Keeping practical usefulness as a research tool and as a guide to further reading in mind, Judith Barger has catalogued the musical content found in the weekly and later monthly issues during the magazine's first thirty years, in music scores, instalments of serialized fiction about musicians, music-related nonfiction, poetry with a musical title or theme, illustrations depicting music making and replies to musical correspondents. The book's introductory chapter reveals how content in The Girl's Own Paper changed over time to reflect a shift in women's music making from a female accomplishment to an increasingly professional role within the discipline, using 'the piano girl' as a case study. A comparison with musical content found in The Boy's Own Paper over the same time span offers additional insight into musical content chosen for the girls' magazine. A user's guide precedes the chronological annotated catalogue; the indexes that follow reveal the magazine's diversity of approach to the subject of music.

Includes 25 previously unpublished photos as well as analysis of previously undocumented productions.
