Notes: Depicts Rose Bradwardine seated by an opened lattice window and with hand over breast, looking attentively at Waverley who is dressed in uniform and reads a book, with more books on the table; a portrait of Rose’s father as a boy hangs on the wall, and flowers are visible outside the window [Chs 13 & 14]. Imprint reads: London. Published June 1 1832, by Jennings & Chaplin, 62 Cheapside. Introductory statement to the containing work states: 'That the Pictorial Embellishments of the Annuals are derived from subjects originally unconnected with the volumes they adorn, and that, consequently, the Letter-press is adapted to the Plates, is a fact so generally known, that little credit for candour is claimed in the avowal that the Engravings of this Work were made from drawings, by eminent masters, intended to illustrate the Novels of Sir Walter Scott’. Title/caption here matches the title of the first of the four stories in the collection.
