Do I love thee, Nell?

Do I love thee, Nell?

 

Nell’s grandfather is a compulsive gambler, and integral to the plot of The Old Curiosity Shop is that he wagers so that Nell will never want for anything. At one point he even steals the money Nell has been saving from her small income.

 F. O. C. Darley. Illustrations from the Household Edition of the Works of Charles Dickens.
