Description

This black and white illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the [1903] Ward, Lock, and Co. Ltd. Complete edition reprint, depicts Alice finding Ellen on the Cat's Back. Ellen sits in the grass, laying across a rock, her hands pressed to her face, as Alice stands above her, leaning her hand against a rock as she looks down gently at Ellen. The outlines of several mountains rise up in the background and a budding branch reaches out over Ellen. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 129 and reads "Ellen was wrought up to the last pitch of grief," and conveys Ellen's despondency.
