Cheating at Cards

G.W.M Reynold's Mysteries of London. Although this is just after the Regency, the penny-dreadfuls started up in the 1830's and could, and did, include some interesting material. This is a close up of a page that contains several illustrations of a man cheating at cards. The text is cautionary, the picture instructive.
