the context of the following text is based on two man playing cards, and a daughter's father was about to lose. my question is, what does the bolted sentences suggest? How could a father get all he lost just by back with his daughter? I guess I interpreted it wrongly; the sentences after "and would he not win, as well" are all about The Beast's fortunes, and I can't make a connection between the two.
A queen, a king, an ace. I saw them in the mirror. Oh, I know he thought he could not lose me; besides, back with me would come all he had lost, the unravelled fortunes of our family at one blow restored. And would he not win, as well, The Beast's hereditary palazzo outside the city; his immense revenues; his lands around the river; his rents, his treasure chest, his Mantegnas, his Giulio Romanos, his Cellini salt-cellars, his titles. . . the very city itself.
