Portrait with facsimile signature of J. B. Buckstone.  In his Bibliography, Eckel lists under the chapter “Some costly Dickensiana” the “Dickens-Thackeray Speeches, 1858.”  Of these speeches, there are only three known copies, one of which was exhibited at the Grolier Club in 1912.  This 36-page pamphlet records the speeches of Dickens and Thackeray at the Thirteenth Anniversary Festival of the Royal General Theatrical Fund on March 29th, 1858.  The preface to the brochure consists of a letter of thanks to Thackeray for occupying the “Chair” at the meeting and is signed by John Baldwin Buckstone, Honorary Treasurer.
