Description

This 4-color wood engraving, appearing on page 62a of the 1886 James Nisbet & Co. Golden Ladder Series reprint, depicts a ship on a rough sea. The illustration first appeared without color in James Nisbet's 1853 Author's Edition (see 3WIS). The caption to the image reads "Far From Home" with a reference to page 62. The image depicts a large ship crossing through a rough and foaming sea. However, the ship is heading towards a horizon of softer and brighter colors, representing a hopeful future ahead for the young passenger, Ellen Montgomery.
