    ADDRESS WHICH APPEARED SHORTLY PREVIOUS TO THE COMPLETION OF THE
    TWENTIETH VOLUME (1868), INTIMATING A NEW SERIES OF "ALL THE YEAR
    ROUND"

    I beg to announce to the readers of this Journal, that on the
    completion of the Twentieth Volume on the Twenty-eighth of November,
    in the present year, I shall commence an entirely New Series of All
    the Year Round. The change is not only due to the convenience of
    the public (with which a set of such books, extending beyond twenty
    large volumes, would be quite incompatible), but is also resolved
    upon for the purpose of effecting some desirable improvements in
    respect of type, paper, and size of page, which could not otherwise
    be made. To the Literature of the New Series it would not become me
    to refer, beyond glancing at the pages of this Journal, and of its
    predecessor, through a score of years; inasmuch as my regular
    fellow-labourers and I will be at our old posts, in company with
    those younger comrades, whom I have had the pleasure of enrolling
    from time to time, and whose number it is always one of my
    pleasantest editorial duties to enlarge.

    As it is better that every kind of work honestly undertaken and
    discharged, should speak for itself than be spoken for, I will only
    remark further on one intended omission in the New Series. The
    Extra Christmas Number has now been so extensively, and regularly,
    and often imitated, that it is in very great danger of becoming
    tiresome. I have therefore resolved (though I cannot add,
    willingly) to abolish it, at the highest tide of its success.

    CHARLES DICKENS.
