Title Page Vignette to the 1852 T. Nelson & Sons Reprint, Version 2, Depicting Ellen Riding the Brownie

48CIA_Nelson_1852_008_web.jpg

This black and white illustration, appearing as the title page vignette to the 1852 T. Nelson & Sons reprint, depicts Ellen riding The Brownie. A caption below the illustration quotes a passage from page 481 of the novel. In the illustration, Ellen sits atop The Brownie as he leaps into the air. Both Ellen and The Brownie look back as if at the viewer of the illustration as they ride in the opposite direction along a path flanked by foliage. A small figure can be seen on the left side of the image in the background, as well as a small white structure that emerges from the top of the tree line. The sense of movement invoked by the position of The Brownie is contrasted by the stillness of the landscape that extends behind Ellen.
