Description

Some among a group of men seem panic-stricken by flames rising from the floor of an inn while one, sitting on a table with his arms crossed around the handle of his sword, looks down coolly at the incident.

The caption reads in French:

— Au feu, à l’aide, l’enfer s’allume. […]
— Sorcellerie ! jetez-vous sur lui … Son affaire ne sera pas longue.

The caption in English was taken from the translation of Faust by Bayard Taylor. New York: Arden Book Company, n.d.
