“Illustration on Page 546a of the 1886 James Nisbet & Co. "New Edition, Golden Ladder Series" Reprint Depicting Edinburgh,” Wide, Wide World Digital Edition, accessed May 13, 2021, https://widewideworlddigitaledition.siue.edu/items/show/2329.
This 4-color wood engraving, appearing on page 546a of the 1886 James Nisbet "New Edition" Golden Ladder Series reprint, depicts Edinburgh from a distance. The illustration first appeared without color in James Nisbet's 1853 Author's Edition (see 3WIS). 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 pale, cloudy blue sky. In the front center of the image are tourists gazing upon old Edinburgh.
