This eleventh volume presents 1158 of Charles Dickens's letters, many previously unpublished or published only in part, from 1865 to 1867. Dickens's main work during this period was the completion of the monthly parts of Our Mutual Friend (final part 31 October 1865, for November) which came out in two volumes (January and November 1865) during its run.

Charles Dickens (1812-70) is one of England's greatest novelists. Born into a poor family (his father was once imprisoned for debt), Dickens became both rich and famous in his lifetime. Graham Storey is a Fellow Emeritus, Trinity Hall, Cambridge.Review:
`another painstakingly researched volume for Dickens readers and scholars alike. ... A new volume of Pilgrim Letters is invaluable simply by making all the known letters available to the reader, and by restoring many hitherto cut or censored letters to completeness. ... the editorial team
present 467 hitherto unpublished letters in this volume, some of them of considerable interest. ... very few stones have been left unturned in the search for information, and the critical apparatus is impressive.'
Tore Rem, March 2001,
`This is presumably the penultimate volume of this towering and meticulously edited series, which every learned library, every literary historian, must find indispensible.'
Alethea Hayter, TLS.
`I have noted when reviewing earlier volumes of these brilliantly edited letters that in many regards they are better than Dickens's novels: this one is no exception ... The footnotes are an enjoyable read almost by themselves, bringing this part of the 19th century to life. Addicts of the
series will regret to note that there is likely to be only one more volume after this, but the editors ensure that every moment can be savoured.'
