A Tale of Two Cities (1859), a fast-paced treatment of the French Revolution, vividly depicts the passions of Madame DeFarge and the other revolutionaries in Paris, and the heroics of Charles Darnay's dark double, Sydney Carton, in London. This novel was published in two different serial forms, virtually simultaneously: it appeared in issues of Dickens’s weekly journal, All the Year Round, from 30 April to 26 November 1859, without illustrations, and it also appeared in eight monthly serial parts appeared between June and December 1859, with the 7th and 8th installments appearing as a double number. The wrapper design and illustrations for the monthly parts are by Hablot K. Browne.
