The world of Victorian studies just got a jolt!

Scholar and antiquarian Jeremy Parrott recently made a stunning discovery. After receiving a 20-volume bound collection of Charles Dickens’ weekly magazine All the Year Round from an online bookseller, he realized that the collection was annotated – and not by just anyone.  Dickens himself had scribbled notes in the margins revealing a number of previously anonymous authors that “rewrites, effectively, many authors’ bibliographies” including writers like Elizabeth Gaskell, Lewis Carroll and Wilkie CollinsIt should prove a treasure trove for generations of future doctoral students.
