Lvov, in a house coat with a belt and in chamois leather shoes, was sitting in an armchair, and with a pince-nez
with blue glasses he was reading a book that stood on a reading desk, while in his beautiful hand he held a half-burned cigarette daintily away from him.
A thin, dark young man, wearing a pince-nez
and smoking a cigarette, looked up from his writing as she entered.
He was a man, apparently of middle age, of middle height, clean-shaven, with good but undistinguished features, dark eyes, very clear and very bright, which showed, indeed, but little need of the pince-nez
which hung by a thin black cord from his neck.
His great convex pince-nez
- I saw it, I recognised the kind - is for his poor ruined sight.
It was a very long gold pin, and had the carved head of a monkey or some such thing," continued the cleric; "and it was fixed in a rather odd way--he wore pince-nez
and a broad black--"
He was slowly and lovingly unfolding the Times preparatory to the long read which led up to luncheon, and had even got so far as to fasten his golden pince-nez
on to his thin, high-bridged nose, when he heard a crunching of gravel, and, looking over the top of his paper, saw Mrs.
He unfolded it and disclosed a golden pince-nez
, with two broken ends of black silk cord dangling from the end of it.
As he touched her, his gold pince-nez
became dislodged and was flattened between them.
He wore gold-rimmed pince-nez
, and had a curious impassivity of feature.
Herr Liesecke, too, looked as if wild horses could not make him inattentive; there were lines across his forehead, his lips were parted, his pince-nez
at right angles to his nose, and he had laid a thick, white hand on either knee.
He put on a black-framed pince-nez
upon a blunt and shapeless nose, and seemed struck by Mr Verloc's appearance.
I then glanced at her face, and, observing the dint of a pince-nez
at either side of her nose, I ventured a remark upon short sight and typewriting, which seemed to surprise her.
