Illustration on Page 118a of the 1886 James Nisbet & Co. "New Edition, Golden Ladder Series" Reprint Depicting Ellen and Nancy at the Brook

8UVA_Nisbet_1886_118_web.jpg

This 4-color wood engraving, appearing on page 118a of the 1886 James Nisbet & Co. Golden Ladder Series reprint, depicts Ellen and Nancy at the brook. The illustration first appeared without color in James Nisbet's 1853 Author's Edition (see 3WIS). The caption to the image reads "The Charmed Spot" with a reference to page 118. The image depicts Ellen sitting thoughtfully beside a brook, while Nancy stands behind her, wearing a sullen expression. Ellen is dressed in a clean apron and wrapped in a red shawl, whereas Nancy stands in a rather dingy and wrinkled dress. This further illustrates the fundamental difference between Ellen's purity and gentleness, and Nancy's rough-and-tumble ways.
