“Leave him here to his fate—it is getting so late!”
The Bellman exclaimed in a fright.
“We have lost half the day. Any further delay,
And we sha’nt catch a Snark before night!”
These images are the original caricaturish illustrations by Henry Holiday that accompanied Lewis Carroll's 1876 comic poem, The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in Eight Fits).
All 9 original Holiday illustrations are displayed, together with a reproduction of the text of The Hunting of the Snark at the University of Adelaide Library.
UPDATE (Feb. 2009): See this interesting pdf - mentioned by Goetz in a comment below - that provides some compelling evidence about the historical illustration origins/inspiration for Holiday's drawings in 'The Hunting of the Snark'.
