Catalogue Note

The first work is the first publication in book form of any of Thackerary's literary works, appearing first in periodical form in Fraser's Magazine between November 1837 and July 1838. Anne Isabella Thackeray was the novelist's eldest daughter, and a noted writer in her own right. She was the step-aunt of Virginia Woolf and is thought to have inspired the character Mrs. Hibery in Night and Day.
