52 issues . Contains the first printed American appearance of *Barnaby Rudge*, complete in 25 installments, as well as selections from *The Old Curiosity Shop*. These works were first issued in London in parts, preceding only very slightly the American issues, as *Master Humphrey's Clock* (containing both *The Old Curiosity Shop* and *Barnaby Rudge* respectively). Also of interest to Dickens collectors is: "Humphrey From His Clock Side in the Chimney-Corner," printed as a single installment on the same page following the last chapter of *The Old Curiosity Shop*, as well as two articles from July 1841 giving a detailed firsthand account of a "Public Dinner to Charles Dickens, Esq. In Edinburgh," and a review of George Cruikshank's *Omnibus*.
