The Mudfog Papers, a collection of sketches by Dickens published in Bentley's Miscellany between 1837 and 1838, describes the local politics of the fictional town of Mudfog - such as the delusions of grandeur of its mayor Nicholas Tulrumble and his disastrous attempts at putting on a public show - and the meetings of its Society for the Advancement of Everything, during which the town is overrun by illustrious scientists and professors conducting ostensibly pointless research. Written at the same time as Oliver Twist - indeed the serialized version of the novel referred to Mudfog as the protagonist's home town - The Mudfog Papers lampoons all manner of journalistic and scientific writing of the time and showcases the young Dickens at his satirical best.

From the introductory note. The papers contained in this little volume were written by Charles Dickens for the early numbers of "Bentley's Miscellany." The manuscripts of the two meetings of the Mudfog Association, and of "Mr. Robert Bolton, the gentleman connected with the Press," in my possession, are covered with corrections, erasures, and additions. At that time Charles Dickens wrote a freer and bolder hand than he came to write in later years, and these manuscripts are easily decipherable. Something perhaps of the comparative freedom 'of the handwriting of these sketches, when set the side of the manuscript of "Our Mutual Friend," may be owing to the quill pen, with whose exit has gone out much of that free and graceful penmanship of which Mr. Lupton reminds us that Thomas Tomkins, of St. Paul's School, was so unrivalled a teacher. -GEORGE BENTLEY.

The Mudfog Papers was written by Victorian era novelist Charles Dickens and published from 1837-38 in the monthly literary serial Bentley's Miscellany, which he then edited. The Mudfog Papers relates the proceedings of a fictional society, 'The Mudfog Society for the Advancement of Everything', a Pickwickian parody of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. (The latter, founded in York in 1831, was one of numerous Victorian learned societies dedicated to the advancement of Science.) Like The Pickwick Papers, The Mudfog Papers claim affinity with parliamentary reports, memoirs, and posthumous papers. The serial was illustrated by George Cruikshank. The fictional town of Mudfog was based on Chatham in Kent, where Dickens spent part of his youth. When Oliver Twist first appeared in Bentley's Miscellany in February 1837, Mudfog was described by Dickens as the town where Oliver was born and spent his early years, making Oliver Twist a continuation of The Mudfog Papers; but this allusion was removed when the novel was printed in book form. At the conclusion of his first contribution, about the mayor of the provincial town of Mudfog, Dickens explains that "this is the first time we have published any of our gleanings from this particular source," referring to 'The Mudfog Papers'. He also suggests that "at some future period, we may venture to open the chronicles of Mudfog." The 'Papers' were first published in book form as The Mudfog Papers and Other Sketches in 1880. Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 - 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.
