About: This unused drawing of Miss Murdstone, from Dickens' David Copperfield aptly conjures the author's description: "a gloomy-looking lady she was; dark...and with very heavy eyebrows, nearly meeting over her large nose. I had never, at that time, seen such a metallic lady altogether as Miss Murdstone was."
