This volume contains more than 1200 letters, a third of them never before published, together with a substantial Addenda of over 280 letters from the years 1831 to 1852, which appeared since publication of the earlier volumes of the edition. The period covered by this volume is remarkable: Dickens continued to edit Household Words (in which Hard Times appeared), finished Bleak House and began Little Dorrit, as well as conducted readings for charity, involving himself in other dramatic social and charitable works, and traveled in Switzerland and Italy.

Charles Dickens (1812-70) is one of England's greatest novelists. Born into a poor family (his father was once imprisoned for debt), Dickens became both rich and famous in his lifetime.Review:
"No single letter, however, prepares you for the sense of energy you get from the volume as a whole....There are displays of energy that wear you down, and displays that make you feel more alive yourself. Dickens's are of the second kind....Like earlier volumes in the Pilgrim series, this new one has been impeccably edited; like them, too, its has a double appeal. It leaves you feeling that you know Dickens much better, and it takes you deep in Victorian life."--John Gross, Sunday Telegraph
