From Henry Holiday's illustrations to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (1876) Illustration (1876) by Henry Holiday (engraved by Joseph Swain) to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark depicting the Bellman (a cartoonish version with bigger nose), the Baker, the Barrister, the Billard marker (dipicted only in this illustration), the Banker (looks different in some other illustrations), the Bonnet maker (half hidden face; only in this illustration, perhaps an "Assistenzselbstbildnis" of Henry Holiday) and the Broker. Whatsoever, on board of that snarked vessel you probably can forget about playing billards anyway.

Illustration by Henry Holiday (cut by Joseph Swain) to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark , 1876. Why should a peaceful activity like lace-making (see below or lines #277 to #280 of the Snark ) have "proved an infringement of right"? This image may have been used to symbolize dissection in context with C. L. Dodgson's (aka Lewis Carroll's) involvement in the vivisection debate . 053 · · The last of the crew needs especial remark, 054· · · · Though he looked an incredible dunce: 055· · He had just one idea--but, that one being "Snark," 056· · · · The good Bellman engaged him at once. 057· · He came as a Butcher: but gravely declared, 058· · · · When the ship had been sailing a week, 059· · He could only kill Beavers. The Bellman looked scared, 060· · · · And was almost too frightened to speak: 061· · But at length he explained, in a tremulous tone, 062· · · · There was only one Beaver on board; 063· · And that was a tame one he had of his own, 064· · · · Whose death would be deeply deplored. 065· · The Beaver, who happened to hear the remark, 066· · · · Protested, with tears in its eyes, 067· · That not even the rapture of hunting the Snark 068· · · · Could atone for that dismal surprise! 069· · It strongly advised that the Butcher should be 070· · · · Conveyed in a separate ship: 071· · But the Bellman declared that would never agree 072· · · · With the plans he had made for the trip: 073· · Navigation was always a difficult art, 074· · · · Though with only one ship and one bell: 075· · And he feared he must really decline, for his part, 076· · · · Undertaking another as well. 077· · The Beaver's best course was, no doubt, to procure 078· · · · A second-hand dagger-proof coat-- 079· · So the Baker advised it-- and next, to insure 080· · · · Its life in some Office of note: 081· · This the Banker suggested, and offered for hire 082· · · · (On moderate terms), or for sale, 083· · Two excellent Policies, one Against Fire, 084· · · · And one Against Damage From Hail. 085· · Yet still, ever after that sorrowful day, 086· · · · Whenever the Butcher was by, 087· · The Beaver kept looking the opposite way, 088· · · · And appeared unaccountably shy. And if that was not enough: 273 · · The Boots and the Broker were sharpening a spade-- 274 · · · · Each working the grindstone in turn: 275 · · But the Beaver went on making lace, and displayed 276 · · · · No interest in the concern: 277 · · Though the Barrister tried to appeal to its pride, 278 · · · · And vainly proceeded to cite 279 · · A number of cases, in which making laces 280 · · · · Had been proved an infringement of right . 421 · · But the Barrister, weary of proving in vain 422 · · · · That the Beaver's lace-making was wrong, 423 · · Fell asleep, and in dreams saw the creature quite plain 424 · · · · That his fancy had dwelt on so long.
