A set of 19 square magic lantern slides based on the story of little Emily, as described in chapter 21 of Dickens' novel 'David Copperfield'.

As was fairly common at the time, the book initially had a much longer title: The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (which he never meant to be published on any account). Like most of Dickens's books, it first appeared in serial form, in this case in the period 18481850.

6. Ham, I give you joy, my boy, my hand upon that 7. Presently they brought her to the fireside
Unfortunately slide #8 of this set is missing
8. They all stood crowded round the door 9. A little floundering across the sand
10. Sit ye down, sir, you're welcome, kind and hearty 11. Mr Peggotty thrust forth his face
12. In the midst of the silence of death I read 13. I'm a going to seek my niece
14. 'No, no,' cried Mrs Gummidge, 'not as you are' 15. As we struggled on nearer and nearer
16. 'What is the matter?' I cried 17. Then I saw him standing alone, a rope in his hand
18. They drew him to my feet -- insensible -- dead
19. I saw him laying with his head upon his arm

David arrives in London very hungry.
