This is the title page vignette to the 1853 T. Nelson and Sons Reprint Depicting Ellen preparing to mount the Brownie. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 11 and reads, "Looking round sometimes, as if to make sure that it was herself, and giving a little kind of satisfied neigh when he saw that it was." In the illustration, Ellen stands on a tree stump, wearing a straw hat and apron, and grabs The Brownie's reigns as she prepares to mount him. A dog sits in front of The Brownie looking up at Ellen. The right side of the illustration is framed by foliage while an open field extends into the background of the left side of the illustration.
