Nell , Grandfather, and Quilp

Nell , Grandfather, and Quilp

 

Nell comforts her grandfather after he has lost all of their money gambling. Quilp sneaks in to eavesdrop, “…he soon cast his eye upon a chair, into which he skipped with uncommon agility, and perching himself on the back with his feet upon the seat…”

George Cattermole. Illustration for Charles Dickens’s Master Humphrey’s Clock. London: Chapman and Hall, 1840.
