(DICKENS, Charles) BROCK, C. E.
“Let it lie here, while I tell my story”.
The Seven Poor Travellers. p. 148.
The original illustration, signed by the artist, for the scene in which a convalescent Richard Doubledick awakens to find that the woman tending to him is his once-estranged love Mary, and that she is now his wife, they having married when he had been at the point of death. 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.
