Charles Dickens: All the Year Round (564 words)


Volume 4, Number 84. 1st December 1860 — the first publication of Great Expectations

All the Year Round replaced Household Words as Dickens’s journal in 1859, first appearing in London on 30th April of that year and continuing until Dickens’s death on 9th June 1870. The periodical also appeared as an American edition, being published one day later ‘over there’ and paying Dickens the grand sum of £1000 per annum for the privilege.
