  • Cruikshank’s hand-colored version
  • Having been at Broadstairs on holiday during the summer months, Dickens skipped an instalment for Bentley's Miscellany in September, and thereby missed the opportunity to preview Cruikshank's work. Dickens edited out "the Jew" and replaced it with the name "Fagin" in 1867, but the caption endures as it is embedded in the engraving itself.
