"The Pickwick Papers" was first published serially from 1836 to 1837 under the pseudonym Boz and in book form in 1837. This first fictional work by Dickens was originally commissioned as a series of glorified captions for the work of caricaturist Robert Seymour. His witty, episodic accounts of the kindly, naive Samuel Pickwick and his friends in the Pickwick Club were instantly successful in their own right, however, and made Dickens a literary sensation.

This wonderful Ridgway flow blue plate, circa 1903, is entitled, Mr Pickwick Under Arrest. The wide rose floral border surrounds the comical scene of Mr Pickwick. The plate measures 10" across with a gently scalloped and embossed rim. The backstamp reads "Mr Pickwick Under Arrest - Pickwick by Chas Dickens 1837 - Original Illustrations by R. Seymour & Phiz - Ridgways - England - Rd No 419438". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; overall light crazing.
