Plate 33, Thomas Hardy's The Trumpet-Major
Good Words, September 1880
(two-thirds of page, centred, p. 801), framed: 9.8 cm wide x 14.7 cm high (captioned); illustrates a passage on page 807. This may well be a picture that Collier worked up earlier: "I haven't heard anything from Isbister about making a sketch of the Trumpet Major to serve as an advertisement but I will make one anyway as it will always serve to introduce into the text" (Collier to Hardy, 20 November 1879, Dorset County Museum).
