Richard Doyle

Wood engraving by an unknown engraver [probably Joseph Swain]

2 x 2 inches

W. M. Thackeray,The Newcomes, II, 296.

An anti-semitic cartoon that visualizes the money-lenders of the time in stereotypical fashion. The Newcomes occupy a predatory world and this figure is just another preparing for the financial kill.
