While this book does not state the copyright or publishing date, we believe it is between late 1890's to 1904. The Publisher was The Mershon Company who was mainly a printing press until the late 1890's when they switched gears and became publishers. In 1905 they changed their name briefly before selling the company and being aquired by another publishing company.

This book is a two for one as you get not only Tale of Two Cities, but also Sketches by Boz. This copy has normal wear and tear but is in great condition for the being well over 100 years old
