Dielman, Frederick, “Illustration on Page 152a of Volume 1 of the 1888 J.B. Lippincott Co. Reprint Depicting Ellen and Nancy at the Brook,” Wide, Wide World Digital Edition, accessed January 27, 2023, https://widewideworlddigitaledition.siue.edu/items/show/693.
This illustration, appearing on page 152d of Volume One of the 1888 J.B. Lippincott Co. reprint, depicts Ellen balancing carefully on a log that straddles the brook, while Nancy watches her from the other side. Ellen has her arms stretched out for balance, and a look of concentration on her face. Nancy is facing away from us, and is standing on one foot, as she has just finished putting her shoes back on after crossing the brook herself. Beneath the illustration, in a cursive script, is the name of the artist, Frederick Dielman, and the line "Ellen set out upon her perilous journey," from page 152 of the text. At the very bottom of the page, in the same script, is the title of the book along with the volume and page number.
