About this Item

16 pp. (13 pp. + 3 pp. Notes on reverse of last page and both sides of rear cover). 12mo. An American reissue of the comic verse by George Cruikshank and Charles Dickens, possibly together with William Makepeace Thackeray. Originally issued in 1839, the authorship was, for a long time, a subject of controversy. In "The Colophon. New Graphic Series. Number One" (1939. pp. 39-66), Anne L. Haight adds an interesting discourse on this famous work attributed at different times to Dickens, Thackeray and George Cruikshank, alone or in combination. From Dickens' letters, Haight argues that Dickens wrote the Preface and the Notes, and that he corrected Cruikshank's verses, himself adding the last verse. There is a possibility also that Thackeray contributed in a major way, but his illustrations have been found and differ significantly from Cruikshank's published version. The verses are allegedly traditional. After his famous argument with Dickens, according to Haight, Cruikshank reissued the work without the Notes and with Dickens' last verse replaced by three others by Cruikshank. The original work was adapted in 1839 by Charles Scully as "an historical, pantomimical, melo-dramatical, ballettical, burlesque burletta, in two actsÉfrom an old ballad" (Podeschi, H837) and performed at the New Strand Theatre As noted by Podeschi, the first and last pages of this Carleton issue resemble wrappers, but are numbered in sequence. Front cover detached. Mild soiling of coversSmall chips from lower edge of front cover, wthout loss of text. Else Good +. Podeschi B86 (for this edition).
