Another page with no illustrations and sparse illuminations. As always, there is a coronet above “Princess.” This is followed by actual morning-glories themselves, full-faced floral images with no profiles or ¾ renderings – much different from the bordering motifs of this flower which adorn the cover and front pages. Another Princess coronet for the entire number of illuminations in the second paragraph. The last two illuminations are the sun and branch respectively. And this winds up the artwork on page 20.
Often before a full page color plate, we get rather thin illuminations. And really, this is as it should be. Letitia, I feel, did not want to take much away from those lovely full-paged illustrations.
