Great ExpectationsBook - 1997
Great Expectations is widely regarded as one of the greatest novels by this acclaimed author. Our special edition of Dickens' thrilling book sparkles with some of the gems of The New York Public Library's collections: original drawings executed for 19th century editions of the novel; Dickens' handwritten letters and journals; and a fascinating selection of personal mementos (including Dickens' writing desk)-all of which speak eloquently of the writer and his vividly rendered imaginary world.

"Mother by adoption," retorted Estella, never departing from the easy grace of her attitude, never raising her voice as the other did, never yielding either to anger or tenderness, "Mother by adoption, I have said that I owe everything to you. All I possess is freely yours. All that you have given me, is at your command to have again. Beyond that, I have nothing. And if you ask me to give you what you never gave me, my gratitude and duty cannot do impossibilities."
