In his own words
The striking Miniature Sheet comprises four First Class stamps bearing illustrations by Hablot Knight Brown, aka Phiz, taken from the original publications. It also has a quote from Dickens in its border, together with his key dates and a facsimile of his signature.
No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.
