Originally published along with short stories in his weekly serial “Master Humphrey's Clock” from 1840 to 1841, “The Old Curiosity Shop” tells the tale of Nell Trent and her grandfather who both live in The Old Curiosity Shop in London. In an attempt to secure Nell's financial future, her grandfather dabbles with gambling but ends up losing it all. Convinced that Nell's grandfather has managed to save a small fortune for her, Nell's wastrel brother Frederick teams up with the insalubrious Quip to hunt the pair who have run away to the Midlands to live as beggars. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic famous for having created some of the world's most well-known fictional characters. His works became unprecedentedly popular during his life, and today he is commonly regarded as the greatest Victorian-era novelist. Although perhaps better known for such works as “Oliver Twist” or “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens first gained success with the 1836 serial publication of “The Pickwick Papers”, which turned him almost overnight into an international literary celebrity thanks to his humour, satire, and astute observations concerning society and character. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “Appreciations and Criticisms of the Works of Charles Dickens” by G. K. Chesterton.
