So great was his fright that his waistcoat turned white

So great was his fright that his waistcoat turned white
513 · · He was black in the face, and they scarcely could trace

This is probably one of the strongest examples for resemblances between graphical elements in Henry Holiday's illustrations (1876, cut by Joseph Swain) and graphical elements in another image.

In this case the images are
[left]: The Banker after his encounter with the Bandersnatch, depicted in a segment of Henry Holiday's illustration to The Banker's Fate in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (scanned from an 1876 edition of the book) and
[right]: a horizontally compressed copy of The Image Breakers (1566-1568) aka Allegory of Iconoclasm, an etching by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder (British Museum, Dept. of Print and Drawings, 1933.1.1..3, see also Edward Hodnett: Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder, Utrecht 1971, pp. 25-29).
