Lewis Carroll

Photographic self portrait by Lewis Carroll, and its inclusion into an illustration by Henry Holiday to Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark.

In Holiday’s drafts and in Holiday’s drawing I didn’t see that structure. Thus, also the engraver Joseph Swain could have smuggled a little Carroll portrait onto the rock depicted in that illustration when engraving Holiday’s drawing. Here the hatching is very important.
