Illustration on Page 483 of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Co. "New Edition" Reprint Depicting Ellen Tending the Garden
This black and white illustration appearing on page 483, of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Company "New Edition" Reprint, depicts Ellen tending a garden in Scotland. In the illustration, Ellen stands leaning against a rake, her hand resting on a blooming branch. She looks away distractedly, and is wearing a gingham gown, a dark jacket, and plain straw brim hat. A tall fence stands behind her, blocking any view of the landscape beyond the tended garden. Several gardening pots and a watering can lie on the ground near Ellen's feet.
Subjects: Ellen, Tending the Garden
This illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the 1896 Hodder and Stoughton reprint, depicts Ellen in a flower garden. The caption is a stanza from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1842 poem “Maidenhood.” There is a reference to page 511, the first page of Chapter XLVIII, during which Ellen and her Uncle Lindsay tour Edinburgh. In addition to being quoted in this caption, Longfellow’s stanza appears as an epigraph to the chapter referenced and to the novel as a whole. The image portrays Ellen within a lily patch, positioned in a demure stance with her head bowed, and emphasizes Ellen’s purity while reinforcing her connection to the divine. The gate in the background refers to Longfellow’s verse and to Biblical “gates of brass,” broken down by an Old Testament God (King James Version, Ps. 107.16 and Isa. 45.2).
