Description

Dive into the mesmerizing world of Dickens's classic, A Tale of Two Cities. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution, this novel intricately weaves the lives of its central characters through a tapestry of love, sacrifice, and rebirth. Charles Darnay, a French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a dissolute English lawyer, become intertwined in a tale of identity and redemption that spans from the bustling streets of London to the blood-soaked cobblestones of Paris.

While many associate Dickens with A Christmas Carol and its iconic character, Christmas Scrooge, A Tale of Two Cities stands as a testament to Dickens's unparalleled ability to capture the complexities of human nature and society during times of upheaval.

At Kadri Books, we celebrate Charles Dickens as a novelist of unparalleled vision and craft. So, whether you're revisiting the Dickensian world or discovering it for the first time, let this edition of A Tale of Two Cities be your guide.

Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.

Remember, these are books to be loved, respected, and passed down - your care ensures their stories continue to be told.
