"Der Romancier mit dem dramatischen Genie." Die Zeit Der Besitzer des Raritätenladens, der alte Trent, verschwindet täglich gegen Mitternacht und kehrt erst im Morgengrauen heim. Warum lässt er die kleine Nell in der unheimliche Umgebung alter Rüstungen, rostiger Waffen, Fratzen aus Porzellan und anderer verstaubter Gegenstände mutterseelenallein zurück? Was wollen der hässliche Gnom Quilp und der rücksichtslose Frederick Trent von ihm? - Wie Figuren aus einem Panoptikum ziehen eine Vielzahl merkwürdiger und skurriler, boshafter und liebenswürdiger Gestalten an uns vorüber, die alle mit dem Schicksal der tapferen Nell und ihres hilflosen Grossvaters verknüpft sind. Dieses Schicksal treibt die beiden auf der Flucht vor skrupelloser Geldgier und heimtückischer Intrige aus dem Raritätenladen und hetzt sie auf einer beschwerlichen Wanderung ziellos durch Stadt und Land. Am Ende verlassen die kleine Nell jedoch die Kräfte, und sie vermag nicht mehr, gegen die Widrigkeiten des täglichen Lebens anzukämpfen. Als schliesslich die Gerechtigkeit trotz alledem ihren Lauf nimmt und Güte und Barmherzigkeit den Sieg davontragen, ist es für sie zu spät. "Der grosse viktorianische Erzähler." Die Welt "Die ganze Welt scheint irgendwie lächeln zu müssen, wenn Dickens sie betrachtet." Stefan Zweig

"On a dark wet day, in 1714, the scion of a small German noble house arrived in England. For the court and people of England, this was no casual visitor. The gross figure which set foot at Greenwich and was bumped along to London was George Louis of Hanover, the new King of England. His arrival on the throne was the result of com- plicated arrangements and scheming and his coronation began a dynasty which would include a dazzling history of accomplishments and an outrageous array of lunatics and incompetents. The reign of the House of Hanover which began in the mist at Greenwich would end in the glaze of Victoria's glory. The hatred for the first Hanoverian king would become the adoration of the Empire for the Queen on whose flag the sun never set"--(Front flyleaf of paper cover). The Hanover monarchs of England were: George I (1660-1727), reigned 1714-1727; George II (1683-1760). reigned 1727-1760; George III (1738-1820), reigned 1760-1820; George IV (1762-1830), reigned 1820-1830; William IV (1765-1837), reigned 1830-1837; Queen Victoria (1819-1901), reigned 1837-1901
