WELCOME TO WORDSWORTH EDITIONS

For nearly thirty years we have been making great literature available at a price that all can afford. It all began back in 1992 when we created the £1 classic paperback and ever since then we have stuck to one simple principle: to produce the best quality books that we can at the lowest possible price.
 
    Our collection of around 270 classic titles for adults and children still only cost £2.50, and we think the quality of our current editions is the best they have ever been. So whether you are a student or a school on a limited budget or a just a lover of great literature, then you're in the right place. So go ahead and treat yourself to a masterpiece for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

    And our Classics are only part of the story. Our World Literature series encompasses major works of philosophy, and more, from around the world, our Poetry series covers all of the major British, Irish and American writers and our Mystery & Supernatural series offers chilling ghost stories and intriguing mysteries. Add to that our bumper Special Editions and our beautiful hardback Library Collection and Collector's Editions (which make great presents) and we can truly say that with our collection of around 400 titles we offer something for everyone.

    So go ahead and have a look around - we hope you enjoy your visit.

The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens

In this week's blog, David Stuart Davies looks at Charles Dickens' fourth novelRead the blog here

ABOUT THE BOOK: The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41), with its combination of the sentimental, the grotesque and the socially concerned, and its story of pursuit and courage, which sets the downtrodden and the plucky against the malevolent and the villainous, was an immediate popular success.

Little Nell quickly became one of Dickens' most celebrated characters, who so captured the imagination of his readers that while the novel was being serialised, many of them wrote to him about her fate.

Dickens was conscious of the ‘many friends’ the novel had won for him, and ‘the many hearts it turned to me when they were full of private sorrow’, and it remains one of the most familiar and well-loved of his works.
