Artist's Description

Illustration from a page of an 1841 edition of Gil Blas by Lesage (transalted by Smollett)

Wood engraving created from pencil drawing on wood by Jean Francois Gigoux for an 1835 edition.

Original image size 6.5 × 4 inches. Illustration scanned and photoshopped by Soxy Fleming from a yellowed page of an 1841 edition

I have wherever possible based the name of the illustration on the text in the book (not all illustrations have captions)
