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

Uncle Tom's cabin, or, Life among the lowly by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

38 editions published between 1852 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1852 anti-slavery novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe became the best-selling novel of the 19th century. The novel presents the long-suffering slave Uncle Tom as he and other characters face various hardships in the American South. Stowe's sentimental prose depicts the reality of slavery while also asserting that the power of Christianity can overcome slavery's oppression. Many historians credit Uncle Tom's Cabin with fueling the anti-slavery cause in the United States; however, the novel has a mixed legacy. Many of the 19th-century plays inspired by the novel popularized various stereotypes about African Americans, including the affectionate "mammy" and the dutiful, faithful "Uncle Tom." This particular edition contains 27 illustrations of memorable scenes from the novel
