A Rubber at Miss Havisham's
6 x 4 inches
"We afterwards went up to Miss Havisham's room, and we four played at whist. In the interval Miss Havisham, in a fantastic way, had put some of the most beautiful jewels from her dressing-table into Estella's hair, and abhout her bosom and arms; and I saw even my guardian look at her from under his thick eyebrows, and raise them a little, when her loveliness was before him."
Dickens's Great Expectations, Garnett edition, facing p. 280.
