Each quantity purports to dissect the features of general varieties corresponding to 'The Bashful younger Gentleman', 'The Literary younger Lady', and 'The Couple who Coddle themselves'. Whimsical, satirical, witty and exuberant, the sketches ridicule the behaviour in their topics with excellent comedian influence, rendering Mr Whiffler, Mrs Chopper and their partners immediately recognizable. they provide interesting glimpses of courtship rituals and relatives among the sexes on the outset of the Victorian period, and interesting proof of a author studying his
craft and refining his type.

This variation comprises the unique illustrations by means of Phiz, and an advent that examines the allure of the cartoon, a literary style during which Dickens excelled all through his profession.
