FILE - In this Dec. 5, 2012 file photo, the study in Charles Dickens' home, part of the Charles Dickens Museum in London. For years, the four-story brick row house where the author lived with his young family was a dusty and slightly neglected museum, a mecca for Dickens scholars but overlooked by most visitors to London.
