Resource Update- 'artist B' Jane Eyre illustrations


There was a slight problem with the last batch of illustrations- I didn't post the correct link to the proposal illustration. That is now fixed. And there's another batch of illustrations! No, I don't think I will be finished posting illustrations anytime soon. I still have the other novels to get to and I still have several sets of Jane Eyre to scan let alone the ones I have waiting to be uploaded. One of the editions I have yet to finish scanning has some of the most beautiful and interesting illustrations of all but there are illustrations on so many of the pages there must be dozens.

Anyway, these are also from Anna in Australia, and are also anonymous black and white line drawings. Like the others, they are very beautifully done. Like the others there are one or two surprises- this illustration being one of them. I have not come across another illustration of this scene in my travels. The other, Jane looks suspiciously like William Makepeace Thackeray's own illustrations of Becky Sharp...

Illustrations available here.

The 1943 Random House (New York) edition of "Jane Eyre" has some of the most beautiful illustrations of the novel by Fritz Eichenberg.

You may see one of them at the following link:
