THIS volume is the first of a classified reprint of Dickens's "Household Words." Under the title of "Home and Social Philosophy" it is proposed thus to preserve, in a portable and permanent shape, all those valuable, pithy and entertaining essays which relate to domestic and social economy, familiar illustrations of natural philosophy, and kindred topics. "The World Here and There" will be the title of the series of travellers' narratives and geographical notes. "Home Narratives," including the best of the stories and imaginative sketches, will form the third series. It is thus intended to make a complete reprint of Dickens's admirable work from the commencement, and to continue the series, omitting the articles which are of temporary or local interest.
