About: The Posthumous Papers Of The Pickwick Club - BY CHARLES DICKENS - PREFACE - IT was observed, in the Preface to the original Edition of the Post- Jumous Papers oi the Pickwick Club, that they were designcd for the introduction of diverting characters and incidents that no ingenuity of plot was attempted, or even at that time considered very feasible by the author in connexion with the desultory mode of publication adopted and that the machinery of the Club, proving cumbrous in the management, was gradually abandoned as the u70rl progressed.
About: The first ray of light which illumines the gloom, and converts into a dazzling brilliancy that obscurity in which the earlier history of the public career of the immortal Pickwick would appear to be involved, is derived from the perusal of the following entry in the Transactions of the Pickwick Club, which the editor of these papers feels the highest pleasure in laying before his readers, as a proof of the careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination, with which his search among the multifarious documents confided to him has been conducted.
About: The Story of the Goblins who stole a Sexton âIn an old abbey town, down in this part of the country, a long, long while agoâso long, that the story must be a true one, because our great-grandfathers implicitly believed itâthere officiated as sexton and grave-digger in the churchyard, one Gabriel Grub.
