A brief moment in a remarkable life
Hi fellow collector
In a quiet corner of a gentleman's club, in the heart of Victorian London...
Charles Dickens sits eating his sandwiches.
He nods politely to fellow members. Bids "Good afternoon" to Charles Darwin on his way to the library.
And in this peaceful sanctuary, Dickens writes a letter to a friend.
He addresses the envelope. Signs it with a flourish. Then asks a passing porter to kindly post it at once.
It's a moment in time from the life of Charles Dickens.
Preserved on paper for more than 150 years.

Dickens wrote sections of his masterpiece David Copperfield whilst staying with White in Bonchurch in 1849.Dickens addresses the envelope to the Reverend James White, in the village of Bonchurch on the Isle of Wight.
In 1849 Dickens and his family spent the summer in Bonchurch with Reverend White at his home, Winterbourne House.
Dickens wrote to his daughter Kate:
“I have taken a most delightful and beautiful house, belonging to White, at Bonchurch; cool, airy, private bathing, everything delicious. I think it is the prettiest place I ever saw in my life, at home or abroad.”
And most notably, during his stay Dickens was inspired to write part of his masterpiece David Copperfield.
This attractive display is ready to be framed and hung on your wall.The envelope itself measures 4.5" x 2.5" and is in fine condition, with light stains to the edges and a slight vertical fold.
Dickens has signed boldly in black ink in the lower left corner.

The envelope carries a Penny Red stamp and is postmarked Pall Mall in central London.
This street was home to The Athenaeum, an exclusive gentleman's club where Dickens spent much of his time.
Given the postmark, we believe Dickens likely wrote the letter and posted it directly from the club.
