First published in 1996, The William Makepeace Thackeray Library is a collection of works written by and about the novelist. This fifth volume contains the memoir of Eyre Crowe, who accompanied Thackeray on his tour of America. The account offers an outsider’s glimpse into the professional and public world of William Thackeray whilst on his tour of the United States. It provides the itinerary of the trip, as well as images of the places and people met on the tour, which the reader could not obtain from Thackeray’s letters alone. The introduction by Richard Pearson discusses Crowe and Thackeray’s relationship, Thackeray’s role as a public speaker and his opinion on slavery, a heated issue in both England and America at the time. This book will be of interest to those studying Thackeray and nineteenth-century travel writing and literature.

Vanity Fair is the story of Becky Sharp, one of the most beautiful, willful, and resourcefully charming pleasure-seekers in literature. With finishing-school credentials and proper connections, Becky begins as a governess, wins the hearts of the moneyed young and old, and, in the light of presentation at court and calculated scandals, emerges a full-fledged courtesan on the Continent, living surprisingly well beyond her means. Thackeray's greatest novel is a moral tapestry of early nineteenth-century English manners, and his persistent theme is the folly of the good-at-heart, the evil of those endowed with grace and wit. Anthony Trollope called Thackeray "...one of the recognized stars of the literary heaven." V.S. Pritchett finds Thackeray "...the first of our novelists to catch life visually and actually as it passes in fragments before us...he is above all a superb impressionist - perhaps our greatest." With an Afterword by V.S. Pritchett Book jacket.

During their lifetimes, Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray were engaged in a friendly competition of sorts to see who could gain the most stature and popularity as writers for the masses. Following in Dickens' footsteps, Thackeray began penning a series of heartwarming holiday-themed tales to be published in serial form, often under the pen name "Michael Angelo Titmarsh." Many of the most beloved tales from this series are collected in this volume.
