With a frontispiece and nineteen plates to volume I, frontispiece and nineteen plates to volume II. Lacking publisher's advertisements as was bound without. Our Mutual Friend was written in the years 1864-1865 and was one of his most sophisticated works. He combines satire with social analysis and centres on money.
