Fig 1 'She'

The book is by author H.Rider Haggard. its dated in 1887, published by Longmans.The Illustrator is by  E.K. Johnson, Maurice Greiffenhagen & C.H.M. Kerr.
The story of ‘She’ is a first-person narrative that follows a journey of Horace Holly and his ward Leo Vincey to a lost kingdom in the African interior. They encounter a primitive race of natives and a mysterious white queen, Ayesha, who reigns as the all-powerful "She", or "She-who-must-be-obeyed".
But the landscape that’s described by Holly is open space green areas and ruined city temples and chambers leading to dark spaces.
