A weekly founded by Dickens in 1840, originally intended as a miscellany which would contain a continuous narrative (The Old Curiosity Shop) linked by the reminiscences of the narrator, Master Humphrey. This device was soon dropped, as was the periodical's title after the publication in weekly numbers of Barnaby Rudge (1841).
Subjects: Literary Studies (19th Century).
