Today I scanned the last dozen tipped in colour plate illustrations by Frank Reynolds from Hodder & Stoughton’s 1913 limited edition of Charles Dickens’s ‘The Old Curiosity Shop’ Details about the artist feature in my post ‘Not Done With Pickwick’
As I did yesterday I have included the lines of text that each of the following paintings depicts with the gallery image that can be accessed by clicking on each one individually. With the titles below I have indicated the three exceptions that carry no such references.
‘SALLY BRASS’ (No lines of text)
‘FLIGHT’ (No lines of text)
‘MR AND MRS QUILP’
‘THE MARCHIONESS’ (No lines of text)
‘AWAY WITH MELANCHOLY’
‘NEAR THE JOURNEY’S END’ (No lines of text)
This evening we dined on lamb roasted slowly enough to provide crisp skin while retaining tender meat; equally crisp Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, and parsnips; carrots, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Malbec.
