Hello! I'm publishing a book called "Surprise: The Poetics of the Unexpected from Milton to Austen" (forthcoming from Cornell in 2015). I was intrigued by the Rowlandson illustrations of Joseph Andrews, because I'm looking for an iconic representation of surprise. Do you have any other images from the novel that you could share? I'm particularly interested in finding the scene in which Lady Booby is "surprised" by Joseph in her bedroom. -Christopher R. Miller, Coll. of Staten Island-CUNY
Please email me at email@example.com and I can send you the higher resolution file of that Lady Booby image, a resolution suitable for printing, because we have printed it before as the cover of this issue: http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/eighteenth_century_fiction/toc/ecf.22.3.html Click on the cover image on this page to see a larger version. Is this the image you’re interested in? The dumping scene is a good one for surprise too. Just email me, and I’ll send you the files for these public domain images.
Find several pdf files via this link that are stuffed with images from 18th-century novels. The resolution is high enough to use them in class presentations or at conferences. All are open access, from the Eighteenth-Century Fiction journal archives.
The international quarterly Eighteenth-Century Fiction (ECF) publishes research articles on literature and culture of the period 1660-1832.
A pretty big change will happen gradually over the next 8 weeks at Eighteenth-Century Fiction journal: the online reviewing portal will transfer from “Digital Commons at McMaster University” to “OJS at the University of Toronto Press.” Do feel free to submit your articles for the editors’ consideration at the new online reviewing portal:
