About the book:

This volume combines two titles of great biographical interest. The weekly miscellany, "Master Humphrey's Clock, " besides providing the original setting for "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnaby Rudge, " was the scene of Dickens's revival of Mr. Pickwick and the Wellers. "A Child's History of England" is not representative of Victorian schoolroom history: filled with distrust for the 'good old days, ' writes Derek Hudson in the Introduction, it gives 'an unsparing picture of prolongued wickedness in high places, exposed with lurid detail and much rough sarcasm.'
