Henry Holiday's Snark Illustrations

Uncle's Blanket

Uncle's Blanket 

Segment from an illustration by Henry Holiday (engraver: Joseph Swain) to Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark". Publisher: MACMILLAN AND CO.

left: 1876
R. CLAY, SONS, AND TAYLOR, PRINTERS
Signature: SWAIN S.C.
(scaled down to the size of the miniature edition)

right: 1910, 2nd Miniature Edition
R. CLAY AND SONS, LIMITED
Signature: SWAIN S.C.


I don't see significant differences and assume, that the 1910 image is a reworked photographic reproduction of the 1876 image.
