It is for the glimpses they afford us of their author that these sketches have a special fascination: not only in foreshadowings of future greatness but in those touches which reveal the young Boz himself

63 editions published between 1838 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dickens's knowledge of London was "extensive and peculiar" - like Sam Weller's in Pickwick Papers. "He knew it all, from Bow to Brentford," said one of his friends. In his Sketches the future novelist was marking out his territory, just as, in the pamphlet Sunday Under Three Heads, also included here, the lifelong campaigner against injustice and class oppression was finding his unique voice. This is the first of four volumes of Dickens's greatest journalism - the first ever annotated edition to be published

Windsor castle by William Harrison Ainsworth( Book )

36 editions published between 1843 and 1903 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally constructed in the 11th century, Windsor Castle is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful -- and architecturally significant -- royal residences ever built. It serves as a fitting backdrop for William Harrison Ainsworth's retelling of the passionate love affair between King Henry VIII and the infamous lady-in-waiting-turned-short-lived-queen, Anne Boleyn
The political house that Jack built : with thirteen cuts by William Hone( Book )

67 editions published between 1818 and 1971 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

37 editions published between 1839 and 2005 in English and held by 358 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
History of the Irish rebellion in 1798: with memoirs of the union, and Emmett's insurrection in 1803 by W. H Maxwell( Book )

39 editions published between 1845 and 1894 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

31 editions published between 1852 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 281 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
The Queen's matrimonial ladder : a national toy, with fourteen step scenes ; and illustrations in verse, with eighteen other cuts by William Hone( Book )

64 editions published between 1820 and 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life in London; or, The day and night scenes of Jerry Hawthorne, esq., and his elegant friend Corinthian Tom, accompanied by Bob Logic, the Oxonian, in their rambles and sprees through the metropolis by Pierce Egan( Book )

42 editions published between 1820 and 2012 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierce Egan (1772-1849) was born near London and lived in the area his whole life. He was a famous sports reporter and writer on popular culture. His first book, Boxiana, was a collection of articles about boxing. It was a huge success and established Egan's reputation for wit and sporting knowledge. He is probably best remembered today as the creator of Corinthian Tom and Jerry Hawthorn ('Tom and Jerry'). Published in 1821 and beautifully illustrated by the Cruikshank brothers, this book is the original collection of Tom and Jerry's riotous adventures through Regency London. Its satirical humour and trademark use of current slang made it an overnight success, spawning many imitators and appearing in numerous editions. It was translated into French and inspired a number of successful stage plays that delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. More recently, in 2006, an adaptation appeared on BBC Radio
