"The 'make-up' of Sketches by Boz as a periodical work, bears no relation to that of its immediate predecessor, or indeed to that of any other work which followed. It was a bold experiment, but a badly designed structure. Being a re-issue of a previously published series of articles, it had but little originality of subject matter; the familiar 'green leaves' known even then in almost every household, were discarded, and substituted by an experimental pink cover. The text was very much curtailed... Its reception by advertisers is apparent by the paucity of advertisement material, and the minimum of trade insets which found a place within the covers" (Hatton & Cleaver pp. 91 - 128).
Description: 20 parts (562 p., 40 leaves of plates) : ill. ; 23 cm. (8vo)
