“Frontispiece to the 1887 James Nisbet & Co. "Golden Ladder Series, New Edition" Reprint Depicting Ellen Riding Sharp,” Wide, Wide World Digital Edition, accessed November 28, 2020, https://widewideworlddigitaledition.siue.edu/items/show/2290.
This color illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the 1887 James Nisbet & Co. Golden Ladder Series reprint, depicts Ellen riding Alice's white horse, Sharp, as Alice walks alongside her on their way to Carra-carra. A caption below the illustration reads, "The Pleasant Ride," conveying the ease of the movement and interaction taking place in the illustration. An open valley with several trees and mountains in the distance extends behind them. Ellen rides side-saddle and raises her finger as if she is speaking as Alice looks up at her. Alice's hair extends behind her as if being blown by the wind, establishing a sense of movement in the illustration. This illustration first appeared in the 1853 James Nisbet and Co. "New Edition" (see 77CIA).
