    Hi. I have 28 Dickens books that appear to be very old but there is no indication of when they were published. The green hard cover books have a spine with gold artwork at the top, gold writing a black symbol and gold Chapman & Hall at the bottom. Is there any way of finding the publication date?

    Since some people like to leave rude comments, I decided to leave a good one! This site has been so helpful to me. I have finally sorted my library and have been able to put the Chronicles of Narnia, the Dark Tower series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the Game of thrones series in perfect order. Thank you very much. Your work is appreciated by the majority of users 🙂
