(DICKENS, Charles) BROCK, C. E.
Chapter II. The Story of Richard Doubledick.
"Go, Richard! Heaven forgive you!"
The original illustration, signed by the artist, for the heading of chapter two. The scene depicted shows Richard Doubledick, “gone wrong, and run wild”, being shunned by his betrothed Mary for some unspecified importunity. Charles Brock and his brother Henry used to collect period furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.
