by Robert C. Hanna

Dickens's Uncollected Magazine and Newspaper Sketches, as Originally Composed and Published, 1833-1836 Synopsis

Brings together fifty-four early sketches by Dickens that have never before been collected in this form. Each sketch faithfully reproduces its original version, typesetting features and printing errors included, just as they initially appeared and before Dickens heavily revised them to create his first book, Sketches by Boz. Presenting both authorized and unauthorized versions of the sketches, this edition will enable today's readers to encounter Dickens just as his first readers did some 175 years ago. Hanna's introduction offers sections on Dickens's First Literary Publication, The First Readers of Dickens's Sketches, and Hidden Messages in Dickens's Sketches, . Hanna is a Dickens scholar and editor of The Dickensian at Bethany Lutheran College
