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

This collection presents a combination of journalistic sketches of London scenes and people along with short fictions. First published by the twenty-four-year-old Dickens under the pseudonym of Boz, they were later revealed under his own name. Dickens's genius for eccentric characters and his novelist's eye for telling details were on full display in this early work

The Loving ballad of Lord Bateman by Charles Dickens( Book )
37 editions published between 1839 and 2005 in English and held by 358 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

Uncle Tom's cabin, or, Life among the lowly by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )
33 editions published between 1852 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 284 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
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 )
43 editions published between 1820 and 2012 in English and held by 254 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
