Plate II - Illustration of the crew, as described in Fit the First.
Plate III - End of Fit the First.
Plate IV - The Bellman's Map, described in Fit the Second
Plate V - Fit the Third:
"But oh, beamish nephew, beware of the day,
If your Snark be a Boojum! For then
You will softly and suddenly vanish away,
And never be met with again!"
Plate VI - Fit the Fifth:
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
They persued it with forks and hope;
They threatened its life with a railway-share;
They charmed it with smiles and soap.
Plate VII - Fit the Fifth:
The Beaver brought paper, portfolio, pens,
And ink in unfailing supplies:
While strange creepy creatures came out of their dens,
And watched them with wondering eyes.
Plate VIII - Fit the Sixth: The Barrister's Dream.
Plate IX - Fit the Seventh: The Banker's Fate. After being attacked by a Bandersnatch:
He was black in the face, and they scarcely could trace
The least likeness to what he had been:
While so great was his fright that his waistcoat turned white--
A wonderful thing to be seen!
Plate X - Fit the Tenth
In the midst of the word he was trying to say
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away--
For the Snark was a Boojum, you see.
A more-or-less complete set of Henry Holiday's original illustrations to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (I've also seen a cover image floating around, but do not know for sure if it's by Henry Holiday, and have been unable to obtain a copy. This is all interior artwork, in any case.). For fuller descriptions, see the description pages for each plate.
Support Illustrates the scope perfecly, as those plates were made for that express purpose. -- JovanCormac 10:34, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
Question Is this a complete set (are these all the plates that were made?)? If so, Support. Lycaon (talk) 21:45, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but the first edition also had embossed covers, with a couple little illustrations picked out in gold. These were in a different style, and are only very loosely connected to the poem itself. A teeny-tiny view of these may be found here and here. Adam Cuerden (talk) 03:16, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
