Roger Payne, bookbinder, shown whole length leaning over to the left as he puts a book into a book press in his workroom; on the floor at his feet other books. He is a very thin, frail looking man with hollow cheeks. The room is otherwise empty and in disrepair with cracks in the walls. To the right is a fire blazing in a fireplace with cups and bowls on the mantel, a cup on the grate, and others on the sill of a casement window (left).
