THE consideration which, happily, is now given to all honest work in 
illustration of a standard book enables many a compiler to shorten his preface 
by at least one paragraph. The utmost he need do by way of apology is to 
advance some sort of proof that the book upon which he has been working 
deserves the labour, a need which does not exist in the present case. Pickwick, 
whatever else it is or is not, is an English Classic ; and thus, renders respectable 
even the Pickwickian hewer of wood and drawer of water. 

This Index was originally compiled for private use ; in now enlarging 
its scope and in sending it to press it is intended to enable more admirers of 
Dickens' masterpiece to find easily the favourite or curious passages to which 
they, from time to time, may wish to refer. And as the Author is not aware 
of any means of reference on a similar scale to an English Novel he ventures 
to think that a detailed explanation of its range and plan may be allowed. 

It will be noticed that the present work differs from ordinary Indexes 
in at least two ways, References are not always given under the index-words 
where some readers might expect to find them ; but, on the other hand, it is 
more than a mere index. A convenient example of the first of these points 
of difference occurs on one of the earliest pages. Under the word Attorney a 
complete list will not be found of references to the various attorneys and 
their proceedings ; the references given are to chapters where the word 
" attorney " is used. And in the sections devoted to the chief characters no 
complete list is furnished of the doings and sayings of those illustrious 
personages. Not that such references are not provided, but (as will presently 
be shown), they are provided elsewhere. The reason is to be found in 
the method chosen. Obviously the completeness of a concordance has not been 
even thought of ; but the concordance-principle has been kept partly in view, 
as the Author's desire is to be of use principally to lovers of the book indexed. 
For such persons this method has advantages ; and it will, moreover, be seen 
that many of the illustrative quotations are longer than is usual in a concor- 
dance. He hopes that this last-named provision will not infrequently save 
readers the trouble of going beyond the following pages in search of the aclual 
words for which they may be looking. 

Perhaps it was Mr. Calverley's well-known Examination Questions 
which first drew general attention to the great variety there is in Pickwick. 

And what a funny crowd of characters and terms and phrases it is to which 
" C.S.C." introduces us ! How many readers had noticed half of them during 
cheir perusal of the book ! Even now, twenty years or more since the 
publication of the Questions, how many readers can tell you anything about 
Mr. Brooks or Mr. Staple or Mrs. Bunkin, or about Villam or Young Bantam 
or Old Nobs ! How many can tell you what the narcotic .bedstead was, or a 
red-faced Nixon or a profeel-machine ! And how many recollect when the 
Fat Boy was not asleep; what is "taking a grinder"; who besides Mr. 
Pickwick wore gaiters, and how the old lady made a memorandum at whist ! 
To instance these few puzzles from Calverley's amusing questions is to show 
the great variety above alluded to and the possible usefulness oi the present 

It is plain that the usual selection of index-words will not satisfy 
persons who make a companion of their Pickwick ; and therefore, the area of 
selection in the following pages will be found unusually wide. To begin with, it 
is hoped that every Proper Noun mentioned in the book will be found indexed, 
whether it be the name of a place, an institution or a thing, or the 
name or nickname of a person. Further, the reader will scarcely need to 
be reminded that there are many characters to whom Dickens did not give 
names. These will generally be found indexed under such words as boy, man, 
prisoner, gentleman ; girl, lady, woman, widow. And, besides words of this sort, 
there have been included names of trades and occupations, legal terms, 
animals (real and otherwise), and, also, words relating to objects and fashions 
passing or passed away. References should therefore be found to such words as 
(a) Bail, surrogate, chemist, greengrocer, laundress ; (b) Alibi, capias, jury, probate, 
subpoena ; (c) Donkey, horse, turkey, codfish, unicorn ; (d) Whistler, bishop, wassail, 
dickey, sedan-chair, pelerine and surtout. A selection, too, has been made of 
miscellaneous words and phrases dear to Pickwickians, (e.g.) Crumpets, 
imimriable, unekal, vessel ; Airy-bell, patent-digester, sanguine shirt, ventilation 
gossamer ; Female markis, scorbutic youth, prodigy son ; Beeswax his memory, moral 
pocket handkerchief, never mind, over the left, single and singular ; Tip cheese, flying 
the garter, and knocking at the cobbler's door. In fact, besides the method, it is the 
provision of common nouns and of phrases upon which the author principally 
relies for any attention which this work may hope to receive from persons best 
qualified to judge, 

With the aid of the following pages the wrestler with Calverley's 
questions should meet with fair success, while other enquirers will be able to 
track to their lurking-places such inconspicuous characters as Charlie, Kate, 
Hunt, Mr. Price and Mrs., Harris.* Also they will be enabled to distinguish 
Villam from Villiam and Mr. Neddy from Mr. Noddy. Again, most lovers 

* There is a Mrs. Harris in Pickwick ; more real, though less known by name, than her 
famous namesake in Martin Chuzxlewt. 


of Pickwick probably know the two Bull Inns and Royal Hotels, and where 
they are ; but possibly the multitude is less great of those who can tell you 
off-hand the localities of the three White Harts or the four High Streets. 
Then there are the two Jems and Johns, the five Toms and two Tommies, 
the three Janes and five Marys (exclusive of a Mary Ann). It is true that 
one of the Marys is a nominis umbra ; but the seeker after information will 
now be able to learn with little loss of time or temper where that name occurs 
and who uses it. 

The scope of the following work can be shown in an interesting way by 
comparing it with some well-known index. Take, for instance, that large 
collection of Proper Names, Macaulay's Essays, a book which is provided 
with one of the most exhaustive of ordinary indexes.* There the index-words, 
including about eighty cross-references, just exceed thirteen hundred, and of 
these twelve hundred are Proper Nouns ; leaving only one hundred other 
words. In the number of Proper Names perhaps few books except Gazetteers 
and Biographical Dictionaries may hope to rival Macaulay's Essays ; but 
Pickwick has about six hundred and fifty, surely a large number' for a single 
work, and that a work of fiction.f Those six hundred and fifty names have 
been indexed, as above-mentioned, and the various other words selected number 
six hundred. In addition there are nearly two hundred and fifty cross- 
references, about ninety of these being index-words and the rest being given 
elsewhere, chiefly at the end of sections. 

Passing now to details of arrangement, it will be noticed that, while, as 
a rule, the sentences, &c., under each index- word are printed in the Order of 
their occurrence, an exception is made in the case of the sections devoted to 
some of the leading personages. There the particulars have been distributed 
into three groups, (i) personal characteristics, (ii) doings, and (iii) such note- 
worthy sayings as are not indexed under any other notable word. In the 
section (e.g.) devoted to Mr. Pickwick will be found several of that learned 
man's utterances, but his punning soliloquy will be found elsewhere, references 
to it being given under two prominent words, cow and Pan. Again, the 
sayings of Sam Weller J are such a prominent feature that it has been thought 

* Even an index compiled on the usual plan occasionally excites false hopes. The very 
first entry in the excellent index above referred to is a case in point. It leads to 
something different from what an inexperienced reader would expect to find. The 
entry is " Abbe and abbot, difference between." Turning to the page given, we find 
that " an Abbot is the head of a religious house ; an Abbe is quite a different 
sort of person," a piece of information which certainly does not seem to be of 
excessive amplitude. 

f It has often been pointed out that Shakespeare's vocabulary extends to fifteen thousand 
words and Milton's to eight thousand. The vocabulary of Dickens also is copious, 
and that copiousness becomes specially noticeable after indulgence in studies 
incidental to the compilation of an index. In Pickwick alone there are more than 
five thousand two hundred common nouns, exclusive of slang terms. 
Throughout the Index Mr. Samuel Weller is referred to as " Sam," and his father as 

Mr. Weller." 


convenient to collet them and to arrange them in alphabetical order at the end 
of their appropriate section. To that section the reader will turn for the 
difium, &c., that he wants ; but should he desire to find the second part of a 
" Wellerism " (i.e., As the . . . said, &c.) he will turn to some characteristic 
word occurring in tfiat part (e.g., Nobleman ; Servant ; Housebreaker). And with 
regard to events, &c., although, as has already been remarked, no complete 
list is given of (e.g.) the adventures of Mr. Winkle, an attempt has been 
made to indicate the localities successively visited by Mr. Pickwick during the 
Corresponding Society's existence, italic type being used to distinguish places 
where the hero stayed for at least one night. 

While on the subject of printing, attention may be drawn to the varieties 
of type used in the case of the index-words. Generally those words are 
printed in thickened ordinary type ; but a difference has been made as 
regards persons. Those characters to whom Dickens gave names are printed 
in two other kinds of type, in UPRIGHT CAPITAL LETTERS where the 
characters belong to the main narrative, and in SLANTING CAPITALS 
where they belong to any of the incidental stories or where they cannot fairly 
be considered characters at all, but who are alluded to by various characters 
as living at the time. For instance, Mrs. Budger, Mr. Dumkins, Jingle, 
Smouch, Mr. Stiggins and Mr. Wardle appear in upright capital letters ; 
Lobbs, Pipkin and Tom Smart appear in slanting capitals. Porkenham, 
Slasher, Mr. Cluppins and Mrs. Mudberry also appear in the last-mentioned 
kind of type, while Pythagoras, Julius Caesar, Mr. Perceval and Mrs. Pell 
do not. 

Further, in the illustrative matter a convention has been adopted which, 
it is hoped, will prove of use. Anything said by one of the characters will 
be found printed as a quotation ; words inserted by the compiler will be found 
enclosed within brackets ; and everything which appears without these or 
without inverted commas may be taken as Dickens' own words, phrases 
occurring in narrative or description, and opinions expressed by him in proprid 
persona. For instances, reference may be made to the comparison of the 
Insolvent Court atmosphere on a wet day and to the dictum concerning the 
lack of glasses in lodging houses. 

But it is more than time that these prefatory remarks should end, and 
the Author therefore now sends forth his little work. He will, of course, be 
grateful for any corrections or criticisms with which readers may favour him, 
and he will be indeed glad if what he now submits shall be found useful as a 
means of reference to one of the most entertaining and genial and most 
quotable of modern English books.

To Explanatory Notes it should be added that, when using an 
Edition of " Pickwick " where the chapters are numbered 
to LVII, it will become necessary to add one to any index- 
reference higher than 28. Thus, 34 (e.g.) would, in such an 
Edition, be chapter 35.
