The editor was "The Musical Director of Vauxhall Gardens". By this stage, the Gardens themselves were long past their best, having gone through bankruptcy and several changes of ownership in the preceding few years; in his Sketches by Boz, Dickens paints a very shabby picture of the whole affair. And, indeed, they closed for good in 1859.; 12mo (3" x 5"); 216 pages
