Post Dickens, Charles: The Pickwick Papers (Illustrated). v6. 16th Oct 2009

Undoubtedly, the adventures of benevolent Mr Pickwick, sensitive Mr Tupman, literary Mr Snodgrass and sportive Mr Winkle will continue to delight readers of all ages for a couple of hundreds of years more from now. Unlike the rest of Dickens's novels, this book is just the extremely enjoyable story of the four above-named gentlemen who decide to create a club of which Mr Pickwick is the main member. We follow them all around London, into the countryside and even inside a debtors' prison. On their way, they meet several memorable characters, including Mr Jingle, Job Trotter, Messrs Dodson and Fogg and even a couple of ladies two of them fall in love with. The novel has no main plot, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable story that's read in a light, lively way. Moreover, "Pickwick Papers" is a wonderful insight into Victorian society, written in the way only Dickens can write.

Full illustrated with the original black and white illustrations by Seymour and Phiz.

This one was a real pain to do, by the way. It's full of songs, verses, letters, etc, all of which needed extensive re-formatting from the PG original. Took hours and hours to produce.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 18 Dec 07

Completely recreated the book. Improved the formatting and added illustrations. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 21 Mar 07

Recreated the book to sort out problems with paragraph endings. Improved the layout and formatting. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 11 Dec 08

Thoroughly proofed against several different printed editions. Hundreds of minor corrections made as a result; the book is now in a pretty good state. Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 16 Oct 09

Replaced the cover to be consistent with the rest of the MR Dickens series; made internal changes to the HTML code to improve it (these have no visible impact for the reader). Uploaded v6.
