Nicely done[edit]

This looks great - very clean and easy to navigate. Way to take the initiative on this issue! Keep up the great work. -Midnightdreary 15:03, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Master Humphrey's Clock[edit]

Dickens published a book called Master Humphrey's Clock. I don't see it listed here. It contains 6 chapters is roughly 110 pages long with illustrations. The chapter titles are bla

  • I. Master Humphrey, from his clock-side in the chimney corner
  • II. Master Humphrey, from his clock-side in the chimney corner
  • III. Master Humphrey's visitor
  • IV. The Clock
  • V. Mr. Weller's Watch
  • VI. Master Humphrey, from his clock-side in the chimney corner

I don't where in this bibliography it belongs but obviously a major work that is missing from the list. (talk) 23:32, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I've added it under "Short Story Collections" - it was originally published as a serial but later collected under a single "volume". Confusing. (talk) 23:37, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Missing works[edit]

I think this page is really well done. I noticed a few works that are missing, but I don't want to add them myself since I have no idea what I'm doing here. So here they are:

  • The Strange Gentleman - A comic burletta written as a companion piece to The Village Coquettes, first staged September 1836, based on a short story called "The Great Winglebury Duel" that appeared in Sketches by Boz.
  • Is She His Wife? Or, Something Singular! - Either another comic burletta or a one-act farce (the book I have calls it both), first written in 1837
  • Mr Nightingale's Diary - One act farce written in 1851 by Dickens and Mark Lemon for a Royal Performance at the Duke of Devonshire's London home for Queen Victoria and Albert, Prince Consort on May 27, 1851. Both authors also acted in the play along with Wilkie Collins.
