Description

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.

    • 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)
