Notes: Depicts Nicol Jarvie, surrounded by armed Highlanders, addressing Helen MacGregor, who stands with a long broadsword pointing to the ground [Ch. 31] Imprint reads: London. Published Nov. 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 last of the four stories in the collection. Same as #WAK0001, but with different title/caption (see image). Exhibited as painting at Royal Academy, no. 610, 1832.
