Description

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 546a of the [1893] James Nisbet & Co. reprint, depicts Edinburgh from a distance. The illustration first appeared without color in James Nisbet's 1853 Author's Edition (see 9WIS). The caption to the image reads "Edinburgh" with a reference to page 546. The landscape captures the natural beauty of the hilly terrain, while also showing the large edifices and monuments known to that city, such as the Nelson Monument, which spires up into the sky. In the front center of the image are tourists gazing upon old Edinburgh.
