Charles Dickens: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

By R. Seymour, via Wikipedia.The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, or The Pickwick Papers, was the first novel by Charles Dickens, originally serialised from 1836 to 1837, when it was published in book form.

Commissioned to accompany humorous pictures of country life by illustrator Robert Seymour, it was an instant success, remembered for some of Dickens' best-loved characters, such as the cockney manservant Sam Weller. It is nevertheless remains unique in employing a broad comic vein to which Dickens never fully returned.
