博茲札記》(Sketches by Boz),英國作家狄更斯的第一部散文集,1836年出版,當時他還是英國《晨報》的國會記者,專門採訪英國下議院的政策辯論,也時常採訪各種選舉活動。這段時間他經常在期刊上發表文章、短篇作品,並以“博茲”為筆名,文章筆調輕鬆,內容詼諧的風格,後來兩次結集出版為「博茲札記」,第一版由政治連環漫畫家克魯克香克(George Cruikshank)插圖。博茲札記雖未讓狄更斯名躁一時,但引起一家出版商的青睞,請他為“運動員畫冊月刊”寫說明文字,他原本不懂玩球、獵狐,但期間因原畫家猝逝,使得狄更斯反客為主、掌握主動,騁馳想像空間,於是出現後來的「匹克威克外傳」(The Posthumous Popers of the Pickwick Club)。
