Master Humphrey's Clock
14.5 x 10 cm vignetted
Dickens's Master Humphrey's Clock, in Vol. 6 of the Charles Dickens Library Edition, facing the frontispiece of From His Clock-side in the Chimney Corner, anticipating the initial selection "Master Humphrey from His Clock-side in the Chimney-Corner" (1-7 in the second half of volume 6). In no respects is this engraved title-page different from other general Characters title-pages in this 1910 edition. [Commentary continues below.]
