Book dealer Dr. Jeremy Parrott has discovered a bound collection of All the Year Round with annotations that, according to leading scholars, are "almost certainly" by Dickens himself, identifying the authors of all the anonymous pieces that were published in the magazine.

When this list emerges it will change Victorian scholarship.”
