All the Year Round – 1859-1870 – a weekly magazine



This was a weekly magazine founded by Charles Dickens when he fell out with Bradbury & Evans.

It was published by Chapman & Hall and continued after Dickens’ death (in 1870) until 1895. Its original full title was All the Year Round, a weekly journal, conducted by Charles Dickens. It was owned by the author and his eldest son, Charles Dickens Jr, with a quarter owned by the editor/journalist William Henry Willis.

Its first issue was 28 Jan 1959, and it created volumes that were a half-year, 26 issues, long.

It went on to include A Tale of Two Cities (Jun 1859-Dec 1859), Great Expectations (Dec 1860-Aug 1861) and The Uncommercial Traveller (Jan 1850-13 Oct 1860, 1863-1865, 1868-1869).

Other contributors included Edward Bulmer-Lytton, Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell and Anthony Trollope.
