A small girl plays with a toy horse, dolls, a doll-house and a sheep on wheels; she crouches on the floor. Behind her a boy holds a stick. An older girl talks to the servant, who is dark-skinned, and who holds a baby. It is a family scene perhaps from the American South, and possibly, given the date, the woman servant is free, not a slave, although since the book was produced in Scotland and I don’t have a copy myself to check, I can’t be sure.

The engraving is signed Dalziel; the Dalziel brothers did a lot of work for Thomas Nelson, the publishers, who were based in Edinburgh. The caption also says Page 69. but I do not have a copy of the book to check.
