Illustration on Page 528 of the 1896 Hodder and Stoughton Reprint Depicting Ellen Missing Those at Home
This black and white illustration appearing on page 528, of the 1896 Hodder and Stoughton Reprint, depicts Ellen sitting slightly removed from a little table and looking outside a very large window over the estate. Her posture is slightly hunched, as if to convey that she is carrying a large, emotional burden. Her expression is wistful as she contemplates and compares her new life with the Lindsay's with her life in America. This illustration first appeared on page 528, of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Co. "New Edition" Reprint (see 9CIA).

Illustration on Page 212a of the  George Routledge & Sons, Ltd. Reprint Depicting Mr. Van Brunt Visiting Ellen at her Sickbed
This illustration, appearing on page 212a of the  George Routledge and Sons edition, depicts a pale Ellen, sick in bed, as she kisses Mr. Van Brunt's hand. Mr. Van Brunt, dressed in a long green coat and pants with a buttoned orange shirt, stands next to Ellen's bed holding a hymn book in one hand as Ellen kisses the other. A caption below the illustration quotes a short passage from page 212. The illustration embodies the ideas of sentimentalism, which utilizes emotion to affect ideas of morality. Ellen, who has just expressed her desire for Mr. Van Brunt to become one of the "fold of Christ's people," appeals to Mr. Van Brunt (and the viewer of the illustration) through a display of emotional affection. The presence of the hymn book foreshadows Mr. Van Brunt's eventual devotion to Christianity.

This illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the  George Routledge and Sons edition, depicts Ellen returning a mosaic, a "piece of pietra-dura work," to M. Muller, a Swiss man and friend of Ellen's uncle Lindsay. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 532 and reads, "'Tenez, monsieur!' said Ellen, blushing, but smiling, and tendering back the mosaic." Ellen, who is described in the caption as "blushing, but smiling" is turned away from the reader, making it impossible for the viewer of this illustration to confirm the caption's suggestion. During the scene on page 532, the reader is told that the mosaic contains an image of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, which is situated between Italy and France. The room where Ellen and M. Muller stand is brightly lit, highlighting the features of M. Muller and Ellen's light blue dress. Their exchange emphasizes the novel's focus on the interaction between people of various cultures and nationalities.
