Little Dorrit

13.4 x 9.3 cm vignetted

Dickens's Little Dorrit, Vol. 12 of Charles Dickens Library Edition, Book the Second, "Riches," Chapter 19, "The Storming of the Castle in the Air," facing p. 672.

This situation at the farewell banquet in Italy is directly derived from Phiz's original serial illustration, An Unexpected After-dinner Speech, Part Sixteen (March 1857), in which Mr. Dorrit rather recalls his previous identity as "The Father of the Marshalsea" as much as he forgets himself.
