Miss Riderhood at Home

Marcus Stone

Wood engraving by Dalziel

14.2 cm high x 9.5 cm wide

Stone's illustration for Book 2, Chapter 12, "More Birds of Prey," makes an interesting basis for comparison with the far less detailed character study of Pleasant Riderhood and her surly father in Sol Eytinge's series for the same novel in the Diamond Edition, published by Dickens's principal American distributors, Ticknor Fields.
