Abstract

This book contains an introduction and notes by David Ellis, University of Kent at Canterbury and Illustrations by R Seymour, R W Buss and Hablot K Browne (Phiz). "The Pickwick Papers" is Dickens first novel and widely regarded as one of the major classics of comic writing in English. Originally serialised in monthly instalments, it quickly became a huge popular success with sales reaching 40,000 by the final number. In the century and a half since its first appearance, the characters of Mr Pickwick, Sam Weller and the whole of the Pickwickian crew have entered the consciousness of all who love English literature in general, and the works of Dickens in particular.
