Dombey and Son Illustrations

Hablot Browne (Phiz) provided all 40 illustrations for Dombey and Son published in monthly parts October 1846 - April 1848.

Captain Cuttle's Hook Capt. Cuttle's Hook

Sometimes the practice of reversing (or not reversing) the drawing to the printing plate for etching caused confusion as in these illustrations by Phiz for Dombey and Son where Captain Cuttle's hook changes from his left arm to his right.
