    Master Humphrey's Clock is a periodical of short stories Charles Dickens published in The narrator, Master Humphrey, keeps old manuscripts in an antique clock by the chimney-corner. He starts a little club, called Master Humphrey's Clock, whose members share their manuscripts with others.   I actually haven't read the first part of the book: "Master Humphreys Clock" but loved "A Child's History of England". Rather like Howard Zinn's "Peoples History of the United States", Dickens is brutally honest (if that word could be used when there didn't seem to be any references) about the Kings and Queens of England.5/5(1).
