Harvey, William and Dalziel, George, “Title Page Vignette of the 1853 G. Routledge & Co. Reprint Depicting Alice Finding Ellen on the Cat's Back,” Wide, Wide World Digital Edition, accessed February 28, 2021, https://widewideworlddigitaledition.siue.edu/items/show/2458.
This black and white illustration, appearing as the title page vignette to the 1853 G. Routledge & Co. reprint, depicts Alice finding Ellen distraught on the Cat's Back. Both Alice and Ellen are framed by the trees and rocks of the scene. A moon overlooks the scene, with the title, lacking a comma, floating above it like clouds. It uses Susan Warner's pseudonym, Elizabeth Wetherell. The name of the publisher appears below the scene in a similar typography. The name of the illustrator, Dalziel, is inscribed in the lower-right corner of the illustration.
