Arthur Gride and Ralph Nickleby

Harry Furniss


5 ½ by 3 ¾ inches (13.8 cm high x 9.3 cm wide), vignetted

Arthur Gride was a little old man, much bent and slightly twisted. His air was of stealthy, cat-like obsequiousness, his expression a wrinkled leer of cunning, slyness, and avarice. He  sat in a low chair looking up into the face of Ralph Nickleby.   — p. 623.
