Portrait of R. W. Buss, who illustrated Charles Dickens’s sketch “A Little Talk about Spring and Sweeps” which appears in The Library of Fiction published by Chapman and Hall in 1836; a second volume was issued in 1837 but contained no Dickens material.  “A Little Talk about Spring and Sweeps” was re-issued in the Second Series of Sketches by Boz in 1836, under the altered title “The First of May.”
