Fellow Dickensians!

    As promised, here is the first of the selected bibliographies
of individual Dickens novels prepared for use by the participants
in the Dickens Universe meetings at UC Santa Cruz.
   _Nicholas Nickleby_ was studied at the Dickens Universe in the
summer of 1992.  As previously explained, these bibliographies
are by no means complete, but they may be useful in several ways.
We at DICKNS-L would be glad to learn of errors or omissions of
what should have been included, including items of value since
the list was drawn up.
