  14. 14. “why what book is it that the wench has got hold of?” he burst out at last<br />“the history of the Devil by Daniel Defoe. Not Quite the right book for a little girl. How came it among your books Tulliver?” said MR Riley, “How came it amongst your books Tulliver?”<br />“Why it’s one of the books I brought at Partridges sale. They was all bound alike. It’s a good binding you see, and I thought they’d be all good books… and there&apos;s a lot more of ‘em, sermons mostly, and they’ve all got the same covers. I thought they were all of one sample you might say. But it seems you mustn’t judge by the outside. This is a puzzling world.”<br />George Elliot, Mill on the Floss 1860<br />
