Overview

Excerpt from The Yellowplush Papers

The Yellowplush Papers, a work at the foundation of Mr. Thackeray's fame as a writer, appeared in a London edition in 1841, collected from the pages of Fraser's Magazine, and edited by Mr. Michael Angelo Titmarsh, the author's well-known nom de plume. An imperfect collection, long since out of print, had previously been published in Philadelphia.

It is now revived, in connection with a number of the author's miscellaneous writings, which will appear in due succession, for its speciality of thought and character, and its exhibition of those fruitful germs of sentiment and observation which have expanded into the pictures of modern society, read throughout the world in the pages of "Vanity Fair" and "Pendennis." In its peculiar line the "Yellowplush Papers" have never been surpassed. The character is well preserved, and unique as the spelling, which shows that there is a genius even for cacography, and a sentiment, as well as a hearty laugh in a wrong combination of letters.
