The Pickwick Papers Paperback
Part of the Oxford World's Classics series
In 1836 the 23-year-old Dickens was invited by his publishers to write 'a monthly something' illustrated by sporting plates.
Thus the Pickwick Club was born: its supposed 'papers' soom outgrew their origins and became a brilliantly comic novel, still among Dicken's most popular works.
