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.'
