5CIA_Fenno_1904_100a_web.jpg

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 100a of the [1910] R. F. Fenno & Company reprint, depicts Ellen riding in the ox cart. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 100 and reads, "Slowly, very slowly, the oxen drew the cart." In the illustration, Ellen and Mr. Van Brunt sit in the ox cart, the path extending in front of and behind them as they prepare to turn a curve. A hill to their left is topped by a house and is spotted with trees while several other houses sit among the rolling hills ahead of them. Two birds circle over the houses.

Illustration on Page 114c of Volume 1 of the 1853 G.P. Putnam & Co. "Illustrated Edition" Reprint, Depicting Ellen Riding in the Ox Cart

11CIA_Putnam_1853_114C_web.jpg

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 114c of the 1853 G. P. Putnam & Company Illustrated Edition reprint, 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.
