Sketches by Boz and other early papers, 1833-39 by Boz( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London in the 1830s was undergoing great changes. In the streets old hackney coaches jostled with new omnibuses, night watchmen gave way to the new police, the poor crowded into inner-city slums, and the middle classes colonized genteel new suburbs. This was young Dickens's city, and he reported it all - the gin palaces, pleasure gardens, streets, shops, prisons, and law courts - as though he were, in Walter Bagehot's words, "a special correspondent for posterity." It was as a journalist that he first made his mark. His very first book, published when he was only twenty-four, was a collection of sketches that had first appeared in newspapers and magazines written under the pen name "Boz." Sketches by Boz was an instant bestseller

The Loving ballad of Lord Bateman by Charles Dickens( Book )

42 editions published between 1839 and 2020 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the tongue-in-cheek ballad of Lord Bateman, who travels to Turkey and is imprisoned by a Turk but eventually set free by, who else?, the Turk's beautiful daughter. In the ballad she is described thus (it is sung in dialect, or perhaps just in drunkenness ...): "She has got rings on ev'ry finger, / And on one finger she has got three: / Vith as much gay gould about her middle / As would buy half Northumberlee." The price, of course, is marriage. The hilarious drawings by the famed George Cruikshank are what make this very silly love ballad truly delightful. Known for his caricatures, his political cartoons and his book illustrations, Cruikshank had an international following during the 19th century. As interesting in life as he was on the page, Cruikshank was married, but fathered eleven children by his mistress (who lived nearby). One might say that he knew something of love, or at least propagation
