* Charles Dickens...
* Uncommon title...
Page 3 has a short item reading: "Mr. Charles Dickens, the immortal Boz, has announced, through his publishers, Messrs. Chapman and Hall, another new periodical work of humor, to appear on the 1st of August next! The name is of course kept a profound mystery."
The front page has a poem by W. C. Bryant titled "August".
A few ink spots to the back leaf not close to the mentioned content, otherwise very nice.
