The Pickwick Exhibition



The literary exhibition seems to be something, with the exception of The British Library, that we have lost the knack of. I'm sure I'll be told otherwise by some learned reader of this blog but I don't recall much by the way of literary exhibition outside that library of libraries who seem to be the only ones keeping the flame alive. Of course, I'm aware of the Centenary exhibition of Corvine books and relics that took place in Marylebone library in the 60s but not much else...


The postcard above is of one corner of the 1907 Pickwick Exhibition of Dickensian relics and ephemera which was put on by the Dickensian Fellowship in the Dudley Galleries in London...
