2020 EditionDavid Copperfield by Charles Dickens
"I was on the point of slinking off, to think how I had best proceed, when there came out of the house a lady with her handkerchief tied over her cap, and a pair of gardening gloves in her hands, wearing a gardening pocket like a toll-man's apron, and carryinga great knife."
- a pair of floral gardening gloves and gardening shears.
"Her first proceeding there was to unlock a tall press, bring out several bottles, and pour some of the contents of each into my mouth. I think they must have been taken out at random, for I am sure I tasted aniseed water, anchovy sauce, and salad dressing."
- a ceramic salad dressing bottle (handwash only).
"As he sat on my sofa, with his long knees drawn up under his coffee-cup, his hat and gloves upon the ground close to him, his spoon going softly round and round, his shadowless eyes, which looked as if they had scorched their lashes off."
- a marblized ceramic mug and crystal embedded teaspoon (handwash only).
"I wrote a Story, with purpose growing, not remotely, out of my experience, and sent it to Traddles, and he arranged for its publication very advantageously for me."
- a feather pen and the first page of the Story.
