This is a part of a 5-vol. set published earlier this year by Routledge
that reprints several early biographical works on Dickens. Most good
research libraries will already have most of the items included, esp.
those in the later volumes. The price seems awfully high. I believe the
whole set goes for 450 pounds in the UK and about $750 in the US.
