Illustration on Page 124a of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Co. "New Edition" Reprint Depicting, Ellen and Nancy at the Brook
This black and white illustration, appearing on page 124a of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Company "New Edition" reprint, depicts Ellen crossing the brook as Nancy waits for her on the other side. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 125 and reads, "Ellen set out upon her perilous journey." This quote heightens the sense of anticipation already present in the illustration as Ellen holds her arms out to steady herself as she steps onto a log to cross the narrow brook. Nancy stands on the other side of the brook, holding onto a tree as she clutches at her sock, leaning forward to either mock or encourage Ellen. Foliage surrounds the two girls and a short fence can be seen in the background.

This illustration, appearing on page 152d of Volume One of the 1888 J.B. Lippincott Co. reprint, depicts Ellen balancing carefully on a log that straddles the brook, while Nancy watches her from the other side.

Nancy is facing away from us, and is standing on one foot, as she has just finished putting her shoes back on after crossing the brook herself. Beneath the illustration, in a cursive script, is the name of the artist, Frederick Dielman, and the line "Ellen set out upon her perilous journey," from page 152 of the text.

Facing Frontispiece and Title Page Vignette of Volume 2 of the 1853 James Nisbet "Author's Edition" Reprint Depicting the Ox Cart and the Ship
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.
