Dickens on the Shelf

By moving more books to one of the closets (my wife is not thrilled, believe me), I was able to make room for the Dickens books in the center of my bookshelves. My Dickens books don't fit on one shelf anymore, but every book on this particular shelf is a Dickens book, the three little green ones going back to 1867. Those three are signed and dated by their original owner, one Mattie Barnes.

The second shot is just to give a little perspective.

I can't wait to read one of these vintage copies because there are some things in the set that I haven't seen before. Some of it is labeled as "Miscellaneous" and some as "Reprinted Pieces."
