The Adventures of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, signed by Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson has donated a signed copy of The Adventures of Oliver Twist from the Centennial Edition of the Complete Works of Charles Dickens. Published by Heron Books in 1970 to celebrate 100 years after the death of Dickens, the book is bound in green kidron (faux leather) with decorative board and spine, and is beautifully illustrated by George Cruikshank.

Gillian Anderson has portrayed two of Dickens’ most memorable characters, Lady Dedlock in Bleak House, and Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, both BBC adaptations.

She is also known for her role as Dana Scully in The X Files, and she was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award in 2009, for her role as Nora in a new version of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" at the Donmar Warehouse in London.

The book measures 210 x 330 mm. There is a slight split on the cover at the external fold near the spine, but otherwise in good condition.
