Miss Havisham and Estella

Wood engraving

Approximately 10 cm high by 7.5 cm wide (framed)

The seventh illustration in Dickens's Great Expectations in the single volume A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations in the Ticknor & Fields (Boston, 1867) Diamond Edition.

In this final dual, full-page character study for the second novel in the compact American publication, the mature beauty that Pip initially fails to recognise and her mentor in the game of breaking hearts sit before the fire as Pip enters the room at Satis House.
