From the Back Cover:

'The Mystery of Edwin Drood, ' Dickens's last novel, lay unfinished at his death. Speculation remains rife as to its probable conclusion, but should not distract the reader from the merits of what was actually written. The ancient city of Cloisterham, its human frailty, and the lawful life, is an effective background for what Dickens's daughter called a tale of 'the tragic secrets of the human heart'. This edition contains Dickens's working plans for the novel, the original design, and eight of the original illustrations. The text is that of the Clarendon edition.
