NOTES ON ISSUE 8: ILLUSTRATIONS
These illustrations, by Harry French, are taken from the Household Edition of Hard Times, published by Chapman and Hall in London (D. Appleton and Co. in New York), in the 1870s. The cover of the print edition reproduces that editionís paper cover. The weekly serial of Hard Times was not illustrated, nor was the first volume edition.
"Left alone with her mother, Louisa saw her lying with an awful lull upon her face."
