A collected edition of his writings appeared between 1851–54, and The Works of Douglas Jerrold, with a memoir by his son, W. B. Jerrold, in 1863–64, but neither is complete. The first article of the first issue of the Atlantic Monthly (November 1857) is a lengthy obituary for Jerrold. Among the numerous selections from his tales and witticisms are two edited by his grandson, Walter Jerrold, Bons Mots of Charles Dickens and Douglas Jerrold (new ed. 1904), and The Essays of Douglas Jerrold (1903), illustrated by H. M. Brock. See also The Wit and Opinions of Douglas Jerrold (1858), edited by WB Jerrold.

Famous quotes containing the word works:

    And when discipline is concerned, the parent who has to make it to the end of an eighteen-hour day—who works at a job and then takes on a second shift with the kids every night—is much more likely to adopt the survivor’s motto: “If it works, I’ll use it.” From this perspective, dads who are even slightly less involved and emphasize firm limits or character- building might as well be talking a foreign language. They just don’t get it.
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    In all Works of This, and of the Dramatic Kind, STORY, or AMUSEMENT, should be considered as little more than the Vehicle to the more necessary INSTRUCTION.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    I cannot spare water or wine, Tobacco-leaf, or poppy, or rose;
    From the earth-poles to the line, All between that works or grows,
    Every thing is kin of mine.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
