Dodo Classics brings you another classic from Henry James, 'Glasses.' This was a little person whom I would have made a high bid for a good chance to paint.

Henry James, OM, son of theologian Henry James Sr, brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born author, one of the founders and leaders of a school of realism in fiction.
