Each letter is assessed for its authenticity, and is then transcribed and annotated by our team of editors, each of whom is a world authority on various aspects of Dickens's life and work.This online resource was first made available in 2016, but it is an ongoing, regularly updated project, with new letters discovered and uploaded on a regular basis.
