Dealer Notes
The Extraordinary Gazette was a pamphlet advertising Bentley’s Miscellany, ‘The new comic periodical work, edited by “Boz”’, written by Dickens and embellished with extracts from contemporary reviews. The first part is an amusingly pompous speech to the “House” of Bentley, applauding the success of the first number, and commending the forthcoming second number. A list of contributors also appears, as well as the contents of the first three numbers, showing Oliver Twist commencing in the second. The pamphlet appears in two formats: in small 8vo, as here, to be inserted into Bentley’s Standard Novels, as a separate advertising leaflet; and in a 4pp version on larger paper, designed for insertion into periodicals. Both are scarce.
Author DICKENS, Charles.
