Provenance: From the library of The Right Honourable, The Baroness Thatcher LG OM PC FRS. Prime Minister of The United Kingdom 1979 - 1990. [Bonhams Auctioneers, Oxford 25 June 2014 Lot 495 on behalf of St. Mary's Church, Herriard]. The recipient would appear to be the chemist and industrialist, John Rogers (1878–1975) who at the time of presentation was an executive director at ICI. He played a considerable role in the technical development of ICI between 1926 and 1939 and was chairman of the ICI Research Council from 1927 until 1939. He retired from ICI in 1953. (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). Margaret Thatcher was originally a research chemist before becoming a barrister and MP. She did apply for a job at ICI, the application apparently rejected after the personnel described her as “headstrong, obstinate and dangerously self-opinionated”.

[c.1926], Oxford: The Clarendon Press/ Oxford University Press, 1993. Thu volume presents 1271letters, 4388 previously unpublished, for the years 1853 to 1855; it also includes, as a substantial Appendix of Addenda, over 300 letters of the years 1831 to 1852 which came to light too late for earlier volumes. The period is one of activity remarkable even for Dickens. Besides the continuous editing of Household Words (where his Hard Times appears as a weekly serial), he is still at work on Bleak Honse until August 1853 and in 1855 is writing the early numbers of Little Dorrit. He manages and acts in children's plays in his little Tavistock House theatre on Twelfth Night, and later takes the leading part in Wilkie Collins's drama The bhthouse with great effect. Work with Miss Coutts and the troublesome inmates of her "Home" increases, and readings for charity have begun. The Crimean war and the government's mismanagement receive much comment in letters and satirical articles, and lead to one exceptional venture into political life with a speech for the Administrative Reform Association. But his long and happy periods of residence in France with his family encourage a more detached view, and he also revisits Switzerland and Italy on a two-month tour with Collins and the painter Augustus Egg. Friends and family still dominate his personal life, but for a few weeks long-past emotions are revived when he hears from his old love Maria Beadnell, now a middle-aged Mrs Winter; on his side they did not survive an actual meeting.

First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good., The Clarendon Press/ Oxford University Press, 1993, Oxford: The Clarendon Press/ Oxford University Press, 1995. This eighth volume presents about ,1500 letters, many of them unpublished, from the years 1856 to 1858. This period includes several major changes in Dickens's public and private life, notably in 1858 when he separates from his wife and starts a new career of paid readings from his works But throughout 856 and part of 1857, his main preoccupation is the writing of his monthly serial Little Dorrit; for much of 1856 he continues to reside happily in France with his family, both in Boulogne and Paris, giving racy accounts of its theatres and his meetings with writers and artists. At his own amateur theatricals in 1857, his great success in Wilkie Collins's The Frozen Deep has lasting consequences; at the close of his work for the Douglas Jerrold Fund, the play is repeated with professional actresses, including three members ofthe Ternan family. Later rumours of his relations with a young actress (Ellen Ternan) provoke him to an ill-advised public statement which leads to a breach with his publishers and with one of his closest friends, Mark Lemon. Finally, he embarks on the first of many strenuous reading tours, giving 8 readings in over 40 towns, all within three months. His usual activities are not neglected: he makes many speeches for good causes, and continues to edit Household Words (and its successor All the rear Round), with help from his friend and assistant editor Wills. Throughout, there is new material, both in the letters and in the editors' annotation, with some fresh interpretation of controversial matters.
