Description

This black and white frontispiece to the [1950] University of London Press, Ltd. Abridged reprint, depicts Ellen arriving at Aunt Fortune's farm. In the illustration, Ellen's silhouette is standing at the door wearing a bonnet and dress. The fire in the chimney is the only light in the room, illuminating Aunt Fortune's frowning face as she faces Ellen at the door. Aunt Fortune is carrying a lamp in one and and a plate of flood in the other. The grandmother's silhouette is seen sitting in a chair in front of the fire.An inscription below the frontispiece reads, "Who are you? And what's wanting?" which quotes page 58 of the novel.
