    Hello I was wondering if anyone could help me find this version of this charles Dickens a tale of two cities. I know nothing about books but it was in a stack of miscellaneous items in a box. Thought I would ask before I disregard it. It does haveva signature inside the book but not sure if it was the previous owners name or someone special. Thank you for any info! Also it's copyrighted 1922.

    Is it bound in calf? A photograph of the title page is what's helpful in identifying an edition. That and a photograph of the cover (which you've posted.)

    Did you look in the on-line vintage book sites? Abebooks, Amazon, Biblio, Alibris, Loveantiques, etc?

    To help, we need to know the publisher, as well as the date of publication so, as @Debora has said, a photo of the full title page, as well as the reverse of the title page (where additional edition information often appears) is necessary. That said, it is unlikely that a 1922 edition of this very popular novel (originally published in 1859) would have significant value.

    Thanks for the info. I actually found another copy around the 20.00 dollar range. I'll just donate it. Thank you though. Didn't want to leave it without knowing more about it.
