THIS LITTLE BIBLIOGEAPHY

IS AFFECTIONATELY AND GRATEFULLY

INSCRIBED



PREFACE.



A LARGE proportion of this little Bibliography is
necessarily occupied with the enumeration of Thacke-
ray's contributions to Fraser's Magazine and to Punch,
both ranging over periods of ten years. As many of
these are not reprinted in any edition of his Collected
Works, I have endeavoured to make the list as com-
plete as possible ; and in the case of the contributions
to Fraser, I have every reason to believe I have suc-
ceeded. But in the case of Punch (where, indeed, one
is almost overwhelmed with the embarras de richesses),
I have preferred rather to omit some items of minor
interest than to run the risk of including anything
doubtful. For although the well-known and familiar
signature of the spectacles at once identifies any
illustration as Thackeray's, it does not necessarily
follow that the letter-press accompanying it was always
his. But I have included everything that is re-
printed in his Collected Works, and much that is not
reprinted there.

As in my previous Bibliographies every article.



Vlll PREFACE.

without exception, has been described with the actual
book, pamphlet, magazine, or newspaper lying before
me.

It should be added that the list of "Thackerayana"
at the end makes no pretensions to be exhaustive.

I shall be happy to acknowledge and shall be
grateful for any suggestions or additions that corres-
pondents may obligingly communicate to me.

The Preface is dated " London, July 1, 18i0."

The Student's Quabteb, or Paris Pive-and-Thirty Years Since,
by the late William Makepeace Thackeray. Not included in
his Collected Writings. With original coloured illustrations.
London : John Camden Hotten, Piccadilly {n.cl.), pp. 202.

The eight chapters or letters of which this volume is com-
posed were written by Thackeray during his residence in Paris
in the year 1839. It is stated by the editor, who was also the
publisher of the volume, that " they were originally addressed
to a friend, the editor of a foreign journal, in whose publication
they first appeared."

Of the eight Letters seven were reprinted in substance in the
Paris Sketch-Book in 1840, with here and there a slight omission
or alteration, hardly of suflScient interest to note. The only letter,
therefore, " not included in Thackeray's ' Collected Writings '
is that which stands as the fifth, and is entitled ' More Aspects
of Paris Life '" (pp. 113-132), and dated August 31.

The signature " T. T.,'' which is appended by the author to all
of these letters but the eighth and last, had already been used
by him three years previously in a series of letters of no perma-
nent interest or value written by him from Paris as the corres-
pondent of the Constitutional, a journal conducted by his step-
father. The last letter is signed "M. A. T.," which may be sup-
posed to stand for " Michael Angelo Titmarsh," the author's
favourite nom-de-pbime for many 3'ears.

The name of the " foreign journal " in which these letters
appeared was not furnished by the editor ; but he seems to hint



1840 J OF THACKERAY, r 11

in his memorial volume, " Thackeray the Humourist and the
Man of Letters," that it was an American Journal.

It should be added that the coloured illustrations which
figure in this volume were not executed to accompany the letter-
press, even if, as seems probable, they are rightly attributed to
Thackeray's pencil.
