Monsieur Becker

Monsieur Becker

Seraphita

114

Lisait un in-folio, placé sur d’autres livres comme un pupitre.

 

Seated in a large tapestried armchair near the stove, before a table, with his feet in a species of muff, Monsieur Becker was reading a folio volume which was propped against a pile of other books as on a desk. At his left stood a jug of beer and a glass, at his right burned a smoky lamp fed by some species of fish-oil.

SERAPHITA.
Furne, 1846, t. XVI, p. 208
Signatures : Bertall ; Baulant
