Mysterious because neither Copac nor OCLC records a publisher with this imprint. Coxall evidently used the letterpress of the “Household Edition” of Pickwick first published in 1861 by W.A. Townsend, NY (with illustrations from F.O.C. Darley and John Gilbert). Both editions have the same colophon, “Cambridge: Printed by H.O. Houghton.”
The Coveny plates are unusual. They were designed for Twenty Scenes from the Works of Dickens (Sidney 1882). Coveny was an Australian self-taught engraver. Of the six wood engravers for the Phiz “designs,” only five can be identified by their signatures (W.T. Green, W. Measom, W.G. Mason, W.R. Sedgfield, and G. Dalziel). The Onwhyn and Pailthorpe illustrations are familiar to Pickwickians.
Bibliographically, a set “outside” the usual parameters for a Pickwick collection.
