The Brave Courier

Dickens's The Adventures of Oliver Twist, also, Pictures from Italy, American Notes for General Circulation (Diamond Edition)

After the fictional account of Oliver's descent into and return from the familiar-but-foreign cityscape of London's criminal underworld, the reader of the eleventh Diamond Edition volume encounters non-fiction accounts of Dickens's travels France and Italy in 1844-45, when family finances dictated that he and his entourage should live somewhere far less expensive than London, and of his impressions of the eastern United States garnered in his initial reading tour of January through June, 1842.
