August 19, 1854

Bound volume of  the periodical "HOUSEHOLD WORDS conducted by Charles Dickens" (as noted in the masthead of each issue), London, containing 26 weekly issues dating from March 5, 1853 thru Aug. 27, 1853.
Household Words was published every Saturday from March 1850 to May 1859. Theoretically the paper championed the cause of the poor and working classes, but in fact it addressed itself almost exclusively to the middle class. The journal contained a mixture of fiction and nonfiction. A large amount of the non-fiction dealt with the social issues of the time, a focus of Charles Dickens throughout his career.
Complete in over 600 pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, still has the original green, publisher's bindings with gold ink at the spine, interior pages in excellent condition.
Offered at one-third the per-issue price as sold on our website.
