The Ocean Chart

Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark (1876) has been published “with nine illustrations by Henry Holiday”. But there are ten illustrations. One possible explanation: The Ocean-Chart (aka the Bellman’s map) has not been made neither by Henry Holiday nor by Joseph Swain, but by a typesetter.

The map presently is used to navigate the United Kingom through the Brexit.
