Illustration on Page 98b of the [1899] George Routledge & Sons, Ltd. Reprint, Depicting Ellen at the Spout

3DES_Routledge_1889_paratext_098B_web.jpg

This illustration, appearing on page 98b of the [1899] George Routledge and Sons reprint, depicts Ellen attempting to wash at a spout behind her Aunt Fortune's home. Ellen leans over a trough, unsuccessfully attempting to catch water in her hands. A barn stands behind Ellen as several white birds circle above it, and her bright red dress stands out against the lush green hills and trees that extend into the background behind her. A caption below the illustration quotes a passage from page 90 reads, "'But what shall I do without a basin?' thought Ellen; 'I can't catch any water in my hands, it runs too fast.'" Ellen's obvious discomfort in nature is highlighted by her failed attempt to catch the water, but the openness of the hills behind her suggests an opportunity for discovery. An image of the spout first appeared in volume 1 of the 1853 George Palmer Putnam Edition (see 11CIA).

nisbet1853wisv2pagespread_web.jpg

These black and white illustrations, appearing as the frontispiece and title page vignette to volume 2 of the 1853 James Nisbet "Author's Edition" reprint, depicts the ox cart and a ship at sea. The frontispiece depicts depicts Ellen riding in the ox cart as Mr. Van Brunt walks alongside the oxen. Mr. Van Brunt holds up a whip as Ellen sits in a chair in the ox cart looking around her. The landscape surrounding the ox cart is bleak as bare trees hang over the path, and the dark sky contrasts the white ground, suggesting cold weather. The bleak landscape seems to suggest Ellen's apprehension upon leaving Thirlwall in the ox cart as Mr. Van Brunt guides her to her Aunt Fortune's house. The title page vignette depicts a large ship on a dark, rough sea. The ship is heading towards the horizon as the sun rises. The pairing of these illustrations compares two modes of travel that appear in the novel, both suggesting a journey to an unfamiliar location.
