Eugene's Bedside

Marcus Stone

Wood engraving by W. T. Green

13.6 cm high x 9.8 cm wide, vignetted (facing p. 642).

Stone's illustration for Book 4, "A Turning," Chapter 10, "The Doll's dressmaker Discovers A Word," appeared in the October, 1865, instalment.

The scene captured in the thirty-seventh illustration is established at the very opening of the chapter: the presence at the bedside of Mortimer Lightwood and at the foot of the bed Jenny Wren. What is not clear for some paragraphs is that Lizzie is present, but this the illustration makes clear. [See below for commentary and passage illustrated.]
