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

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

34 editions published between 1852 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 436 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 Loving ballad of Lord Bateman by Charles Dickens( Book )

38 editions published between 1839 and 2005 in English and held by 416 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
