Mary ("Mamie") Dickens (1838-1896) was Dickens'' eldest daughter. She remained with her father until his death in 1870, taking second place to her aunt, Georgina Hogarth, as housekeeper and companion, and living with Georgina afterwards. She collaborated with Georgina in the editing and publication of the three volumes of Dickens'' "Letters"published in 1880. Mamie provides a first hand account of life with the "inimitable Boz" and his influences on family and friends, and designed this book to appeal to the young.
