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.

"The Conjuror" illustration for Launcelot Greaves by Tobias Smollett, published in Novelist’s Magazine 1782, vol. 9, plate 10 (engr. Grignion, after Stothard). The details in this engraving are magnificent, including the reptiles and skinned cat hanging from the ceiling, the skull and crossbones peeking out from behind the customer’s knee, and that dangerous-looking hole in the floorboards in the foreground. I always enjoy the style and details of an illustration by Thomas Stothard (1755-1834).
