Editing and publication of
Dickens's letters started in 1949 when publisher Rupert Hart-Davis persuaded Humphry House of Wadham College, Oxford, to edit a complete edition of the letters. House died suddenly aged 46 in 1955. However, the work continued, and by 2002 Volume 12 had been published.
The letters are collected chronologically; thus volume 1 covers the years 1820-1839; volume 2, 1840-1841; volume 3, 1842-1843; volume 4, 1844-1846; volume 5, 1847-1849; volume 6, 1850-1852; volume 7, 1853-1855; volume 8, 1856-1858; volume 9, 1859-1861; volume 10, 1862-1864; volume 11, 1865-1867; and volume 12, 1868-1870.
