"Burdett-Coutts spent the majority of her wealth on scholarships, endowments, and a wide range of philanthropic causes. One of her earliest philanthropic acts was to co-found (with Charles Dickens) a home for young women who had 'turned to a life of immorality', including theft and prostitution. The home was known as Urania Cottage." [Wiki].

The volume contains many hitherto unpublished letters to Burdett-Coutts, which gives one a good flavor of Dickens rather sympathetic nature for those less fortunate.

Uncommon in jacket.
