Pip Pirrip is chosen as a companion to Estelle, the eccentric Miss Havisham’s adopted niece. Long after he helps escaped convict Magwitch, Pip finds himself elevated very suddenly from blacksmith’s apprentice to a young man of means, with an education in view and  with no clue as to who his mysterious benefactor is.  Filled with wonderful Dickens characters:  Joe Gadgery, the mad Miss Havisham, the sinister Magwitch, the perpetually upbeat Samuel Pockets and Samuel’s equally upbeat Aged Parent. Plain cover edition that contains the two endings that Dickens had determined for Pip.
