Dr. Jekyll and His Mirror

Dr. Jekyll and His Mirror Fiction Victorian Age Visual Arts

This development is shocking to Jekyll. How can he become Hyde without swallowing the potion?

Adding to his worries, Jekyll is bothered by a practical problem. Edward Hyde is a wanted man for the murder of Sir Danvers Carew.

Jekyll begins to look into a mirror, in his home, to check-on the current form of his body. Is he Dr. Jekyll, the good man, or Edward Hyde, the evil man?

Charles Raymond Macauley (1871 - 1934) illustrated that scene of the story with this drawing of Jekyll looking into his mirror. The image is included in a 1904 edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's novella, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which was published by Scott-Thaw in New York.
