Summary (From the publisher):

Dombey and Son is the story of Mr. Dombey, the proud, rich owner of a shipping house, whose selfishness has tragic consequences for his family. As his world collapses around him, Dombey becomes a sad figure, estranged from his mistreated though ever-sympathetic daughter Florence.

Throughout the novel runs the theme, a favorite of Dickens, of the railway: a symbol of vitality and change, it contrasts strongly with Dombey's coldness and unflinching arrogance.

Originally published in nineteen monthly installments from October 1846 to April 1848. Each installment was illustrated by "Phiz" (Hablot Knight Browne).
