I bought this for my daughter for Christmas a few years ago and have since "borrowed" it as the illustrations are really beautiful. In fact I am having to give it back so have just ordered myself a copy; it's only available second hand but well worth it. Just to note - this version contains the unabridged text by Dickens.
