Wondering, for an article I'm researching about a real-life Dickens fan in Maine, 1839, in what form he might have gotten his hands on early Charles Dickens stories. Would local northeastern newspapers have bought serialization rights to his stuff, then reprinted it themselves? Or would copies of Bentley's Miscellany have been shipped Stateside?
