The Works of Charles Dickens: Household Edition

Here’s a bit of mystery!

I came across these on eBay several years ago. They clearly are old but I am unable to date them.

They are called

The Works of Charles Dickens: Household Edition 

(Special Edition with Coloured Plates)
Price Two Shillings
Supplied to Subscribers only

They are published by:

London: Davis and Porter
 12 Paternoster Row
and their agents

The coloured plates are beautiful.

So if you can throw any light on these I would be very grateful!!
