I'm not sure if this is the same edition I read or not -- I got mine as a free ebook from Google Books.

I read this to prepare for a reading at our campus library celebrating Dickens' 200th birthday. I found some great pieces and put together a funny collection of anecdotes from Dickens' letters. I give it 3 stars because there is no indication of just how many letters to Collins were NOT included, (and there were many) and quite a bit of repetitive or mundane topics included in the letters that were selected for the book. But then, the edition I had was originally printed in the early 1900s so, of course, they won't include the letters about brothels in Paris. Still a good snapshot into the social and professional life and Charles Dickens.
