This dramatic illustration, called 'Gosvintha's Return is signed R Young senior and depicts the moment when Gosvintha is prevented by Hermanric from killing Antonina. Initially published in the 1861 one-volume edition by Sampson Low, with a colophon shown below, this page was republished in 1875 by Chatto & Windus with a changed colophon. Some Chatto editions - although dated 1875 on the title page - omit the date here.
