Mrs. Tox

Mrs. Tox

 

Lucretia Tox is described by Dickens as  "a long lean figure, wearing such a faded air that she seemed not to have been made in what linen-drapers call 'fast colours' originally, and to have, by little and little, washed out." She has designs on Mr. Dombey after his wife dies.

Extra-illustrations for Dombey and Son, drawn by Hablot K. Browne, 1848.
