Condición del libro: Good
Descripción Philadelphia. Carey, Lea and Blanchard. 1838., 1838. 112, 109 pp. Green publisher's cloth with printed paper label on front cover. First American Editions. From the Last London Edition. Fascinating imprints, very rare with some anomalous details. These writings make up part of early Charles Dickens apocrypha. All these Sketches were attributed to Dickens early on, but Caswall was likely responsible for Sketches of Young Ladies, published originally in 1837 under the pseudonym "Quiz". Mayhew was also considered a possible author. Caswall (1814–1878) was the author of poetry, hymns and humorous works. Becoming a Catholic in 1847, he authored and translated devotional works as well. The first London edition of these sketches was illustrated by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne), who had just done "The Pickwick Papers" for Dickens. This First American Edition is not illustrated. Sketches of Young Gentlemen in 1838 and Sketches of Young Couples in 1840, both published anonymously, were, according to Collins, Dickens' riposte to Sketches of Young Ladies, which Dickens considered an attack upon women. The Dickens' works ("Gentlemen" and "Couples") were anonymously parodied by another author, entitled pseudonymously, "Quiz, Junior." The copy offered here has a contemporary printed paper label , in several type faces and surrounded by a border of a printer's device, on the front cover, attributing the Dickens' work erroneously to "Quiz, Junior. " Textual comparison shows it to be, rather, Dickens' own work. The parody of Dickens' "Gentlemen" by "Quiz, Junior"has a slightly different title ("Characteristic Sketches."). Both volumes included in this offering, published by Carey, Lea and Blanchard, are quite rare: "Young Ladies" is recorded by American Imprints in only two copies, the Huntington Library and Vassar, while "Young Gentlemen," attributed appropriately by American Imprints to Dickens, is similarly rare. They are not in NUC nor inother Dickens reference material, including those works emphasizing American editions. A different American edition was published by Wiley and Putnam and G. Dearborn & Co. (VanderPoel B473), with the Phiz illustrations. Foxed. Else, Very Good. Not recorded in Collins, NCBEL 820, 821. Suzannet, E.39, 43, 52. Eckel, 104–7. Podeschi B63, B87. Smith II, 1–7.
