After Cabin - Captain's Drawing Room (Voyage of a Landsman)

Mounted in album with PAI3425-PAI3505, PAI3507-PAI3776. Seymour's 'Journal of a Landsman from Portsmouth to Lisbon in His Majesty's Ship ----' comprised 14 coloured lithographic plates (on eight sheets) and ten coloured vignettes, issued by McLean: see also PAD0170. It was Seymour's caricatures, especially on hunting and fishing themes, and his idea of a textually linked series of comic sketches about a sporting club that prompted Chapman & Hall to commission from Dickens what eventually became 'The Pickwick Papers'. Seymour was the original illustrator but suffered from depression and shot himself before before the second part of the original Pickwick serial issue of 1836-37 was published: subsequent illustration was by R.W. Buss and Hablot K. Browne ('Phiz').[PvdM 3/11]
