Illustration on Page 212a of the [1899] George Routledge & Sons, Ltd. Reprint, Depicting Mr. Van Brunt Visiting Ellen at her Sickbed

3DES_Routledge_1889_paratext_212A_web.jpg

This illustration, appearing on page 212a of the [1899] George Routledge and Sons edition, depicts a pale Ellen, sick in bed, as she kisses Mr. Van Brunt's hand. Mr. Van Brunt, dressed in a long green coat and pants with a buttoned orange shirt, stands next to Ellen's bed holding a hymn book in one hand as Ellen kisses the other. A caption below the illustration quotes a short passage from page 212. The illustration embodies the ideas of sentimentalism, which utilizes emotion to affect ideas of morality. Ellen, who has just expressed her desire for Mr. Van Brunt to become one of the "fold of Christ's people," appeals to Mr. Van Brunt (and the viewer of the illustration) through a display of emotional affection. The presence of the hymn book foreshadows Mr. Van Brunt's eventual devotion to Christianity.
