The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits.
‘The Barristers Dream’
Eighth of Henry Holiday’s original ilustrations to “The Hunting of the Snark” by Lewis Carroll. This illustration covers Fit the Sixth: The Barrister’s Dream, with various elements from throughout said Fit. The Snark is in the foreground, in barrister’s robe and wig – the nearest to an illustration of it in the entire set, and is acting to defend his client. The barrister is woken up by the Bellman’s bell at the end.
