Description

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 194c of the 1853 G. Routledge & Co. reprint, depicts Alice and Ellen caught in the snow storm as they attempt to find their way home after leaving Mrs. Vawse's. A caption below the illustration reads, "Lost in the Snow-Storm," referencing the scene from page 194 of the novel. In the illustration, Alice and Ellen stand in the snow staring at an approaching lantern that has come into view. Captain Parry, Alice's cat, rests his head on Alice's shoulder as she shields him from the storm. Bare, twisted trees hang over Alice and Ellen, enhancing the sense of confinement in the illustration. Alice and Ellen's dark cloaks stand out against the white snow around them as they wait for the man holding the lantern to approach. The name of the illustrator, Dalziel, is inscribed in the lower-right corner of the illustration.
