"The Hunting of the Snark"

No, that's really what it's called! This is an 1874 illustration of the Lewis Carroll poem by Henry Holiday, via the Steven Poke blog, which in turn was via the terrific "Turn of the Century" tumblr (and thanks to Jessica for the link!) Think Denby would get a kick out of it?

Heya, I've never commented here before, I've been reading for a little while, hope that's ok! Just wanted to say thanks for posting this lovely picture! Have you ever read Phantasmagoria (also Lewis Carroll), I think it's my favourite poem of his and some of the illustrations are quite cool too!
