Dickens's Dream Leather Journal
Robert William Buss (1804-1875) was hired by Dickens's publishers, Chapman and Hall, to provide two illustrations for Pickwick after the original illustrator, Robert Seymour, passed away. The publishers were disappointed with the illustrations provided by Buss and the job went to Hablot Browne. Buss, however, remained a lifelong admirer of Dickens and produced several painting celebrating the author's work. This possible watercolour showing the author surrounded by the characters he created, was done after Dickens’ death in 1870. Buss himself did not live to complete the painting. There is a linkwhich includes a key to all of the characters in Dickens’s Dream.
