Subject: "A low, cheap form of publication."

I am working on *Pickwick Papers* and *Barnaby Rudge*.  In a secondary
source, I have come across the words "a low, cheap form of publication,"
which Dickens is declared to have used to characterise the serialisation of
*Pickwick*.  But no primary source is given, and I have spent fruitless hours
searching the Pilgrim Letters, prefaces, etc.

Can anyone recognise where this comes from, and give me the reference,
please?  Silver star for the bare reference, gold star for complete
bibliographical details.

Waiting thankfully and hopefully.
