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.
