The uncommercial traveller: and Reprinted pieces, etc. with 11 illus, Volume 18
This volume not only combines the two famous collections of Dickens's contributions to the periodicals "All the Year Round" and "Household Words" but also includes 'The Lamplighter, ' 'To Be Read at Dusk, ' 'Sunday under Three Heads, ' 'Hunted Down, ' 'Holiday Romance, ' and 'George Silverman's Explanation.' As Leslie C. Staples writes in his Introduction, 'To know Dickens one must be familiar with a dozen major novels, but the knowledge is incomplete without some familiarity with his journalistic work, muc of the best of which is to be found in this volume.'
