Notes

First edition in book form, first issue (1836 on title page), contains two pieces by Dickens (as Boz) - "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" and "A Little Talk About Spring and the Sweeps". Both were collected in Sketches by Boz published later in the same year. Although the first volume of The Library of Fiction was followed by a second volume (published in 1837), all of Dickens's contributions were present in the first volume.
