Dickens' second magazine: All the Year Round

All the Year Round

Charles Dickens' second general circulation magazine, like Household Words, used a Shakespearean epigram (a paraphrase from Act I of Othello): "The story of our lives from year to year." It also resembled Household Words in its two-column, unillustrated format. It included general interest articles and stories, but prominently featured serialized novels by a number of popular writers, including Dickens' own A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. All the Year Round was published (from 1859 until 1895) by Chapman & Hall in weekly and monthly parts, and also made available as bound yearly volumes, which were advertised on the printed endpapers in most of the volumes. Some of Smith's set of All the Year Round was once owned by a woman, Louisa J. Buckley of Craydon, England, who signed her name on the title page.
