Novelist’s Magazine is full of expressive, narrative engravings. I’m posting from this excellent resource over the next few weeks (maybe months: I adore these engravings). This one is found in Novelist’s Magazine, vol. 2, Containing “Solyman and Almena,” “The Vicar of Wakefield,” “Roderick Random,” “Zadig,” and “The Devil upon Two Sticks” (1780). Illustration from The Adventures of Roderick Random by Tobias Smollett, opp. p. 74.
