Mr. Buckstone as Launcelot Gobbo.
Portrait of John Baldwin Buckstone, (1802-1879), actor, theatre manager; full-length, standing in costume, in the role of Launcelot Gobbo, acting out lines from Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice", looking at his right palm. Quotation from Shakespeare's play "The Merchant of Venice", Act 2, Scene 2: "I cannot get a service, no! I have ne'er a tongue / in my head. - Well (looking on his plam), if any man / in Italy have a fairer table, which doth offer to / swear upon a book I shall have good fortune. Go to, / here's a simple line of life! here's a small trifle of wives:"
