Billiard-Marker & Henry George Liddell

Billiard-Marker & Henry George Liddell
[right]: Henry Holiday's depiction of the Billiard marker in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark. The face in color is Henry George Liddell's face (by Hubert von Herkomer). Liddell was Carroll's (Dodgson's) superior in Christ Church, Oxford. (In the image I wrote "George Henry Liddell". But I am to lazy to correct that mistake now.)

[left]: The left image shows Holiday's draft for the right picture and an image depicting Liddell at age 28. That clear resemblance in Holiday's draft of the Billiard marker to Carroll's boss perhaps was a bit too much for Carroll. In the right picture the resemblance is weaker, but the asymmetry of the eyes and eyebrows still is there. In that final illustration Holiday was more cautious: He gave an older Liddell a wig (which slipped a bit out of position) and chopped of his chin.
