Sketches by Boz: New Edition, Complete
In Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth, Walter E. Smith writes:
“When Chapman and Hall obtained the copyright of Sketches in 1837, they published all of them in twenty monthly parts from November 1837 through June 1839. Cruikshank designed a cover, enlarged the plates (except ‘The Free and Easy’ which was discarded), and created 13 new illustrations for these monthly parts. In May 1839, Chapman and Hall published these parts complete in one volume with all 40 of Cruikshank’s illustrations.”
