Description

This color illustration, appearing on page 394a of the 1887 James Nisbet & Co. "Golden Ladder Series Edition" reprint, depicts Ellen and the Brownie. A caption below the illustration reads, "The Talk to Brownie," describing a scene from page 394. The caption conveys the intimacy that is felt between Ellen and her horse. In the illustration, Ellen stands next to the Brownie, her hand on his mane, as she feeds him a handful of grass. The Brownie leans his head down to take the grass from her. The pair stand in a bright, open field as a cluster of trees stand on a hill behind them. The foreground is lined with small ferns and several sheep appear to be grazing near a mountain in the background.
