Update 2018-02-12:My article is online
(with permission of the Knight Letter
editors). In the online copy, I fixed the wrong URL kl.snr.de. It’s kl.snrk.de
. Also four additional images have been attached to the article.
From Mahendra Singh’s The Dream Book of Mr. Pyridine
Illustrations by Henry Holiday (from The Hunting of the Snark, 1876) and Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder (Allegory of Iconoclasts, aka The Image Breakers, around 1567): In the “mouth” of Gheeraerts’ “head” a praying priest is depicted. The shape of the priest also is visible in the “mouth” of Holiday’s vanishing “Baker”.
