An age-marked page from a book. In the top centre of the page, ornamental illustrated writing reads 'David Copperfield by Charles Dickens'. A black and white illustration below shows a moody, billowing cloudy sky over a choppy sea. Seagulls fly above it. On the shore a large upturned wooden boat is topped with a washing line of clothes blowing in the wind and a smoking chimney. The boat is surrounded by scattered nets, crates, fishing pots and barrels. A young girl sits in the foreground by a pile of pots, ropes, sheets and such. She is barefoot and wearing a simple dress. Her hair is tousled by the wind. She rests one hand in her lap and the other flat on the ground. At the bottom of the page in small plain print are the details of the publisher.
