Dickens had written a hugely popular work and, in so doing, created an instant classic. Within weeks of publication eight different stage adaptations of A Christmas Carol were playing in London theatres (Charles Dickens at 200, The Morgan Library & Museum, 2011). Smith II, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9.

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $600 - $1,200

Description: Great Expectations (GFE, 1946). British Quad (30" X 40"). Charles Dickens' novel is brought to life by director David Lean in this highly regarded British film. Pip is a lowly orphan brought up as a gentleman, with the assistance of a shadowy benefactor. Along his path, he meets an assortment of characters, including the capricious Estella, friendly Herbert Pocket, and the mad Miss Havisham. Starring John Mills, Valerie Hobson, Jean Simmons, and Alec Guinness in his screen debut. A Heritage first, this country-of-origin British quad has been restored to address pinholes in the corners, and a very small chip in the upper border. Touchup has been applied to the folds. Very Fine on Linen.
