St. John Harper; and "Deep Mountain Gorge" by Fred B. Schell (1838-1905). The next four scenes depicted are the "Death of Zarca" by W.L. Sheppard, "Fedalma Dances in the Street" by W.L. Taylor, and two more illustrations by W. St. John Harper, "My Father Comes" and "'Tis a Sword." And finally, an Edmund H. Garrett illustration depicts the departure of the boat in "The Embarkment."
