The volume begins with the final four months of Dickens's American tour of 75 readings, which had been conspicuously successful throughout, despite the appalling weather and his sufferings from "American" catarrh. The tour culminated on 18 April 1868 when the American Press held a dinner in his honour in New York. In July he rented Windsor Lodge, Peckham for Ellen Ternan, where she remained until after his death; he was to give two more English reading tours before his collapse at Preston on 22 April 1869.

NO WONDER DICKENS BELIEVED in spontaneous combustion

NO WONDER DICKENS BELIEVED in spontaneous combustion. The three years covered by this volume are so absurdly full of life that he seems himself in danger of burning up or flying apart. And he finished the book in relative retreat in Boulogne, away from the teeming London that gave it its epic shape. In fact, he hardly notices London any more in the letters, now that he’s got it onto the page so triumphantly. It’s wonderful in this pretty land, of course, but

Kathleen Tillotson, Graham Storey and their team are deserving of every word of praise accorded to them for .

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.
