Lewis Carroll's Hunting of the Snark follows a group of misfits as they undertake a mock-epic sea quest to catch the mythical Snark. They are led by the bewildering and dangerous Bellman. The shipmates sail aimlessly using a blank map.
This newly illustrated edition repeats the droll sarcasm of Carroll's original text; only now it has been given dark relevance by wood-engraver George A. Walker who has created allusive illustrations of acerbic political relevance.
Very Fine / Near Mint copies of the illustrated poem; the illustrated promotional brochure, and a frameable "Snark Map" printed on heavy stock. Remarkable political mementos caustically satirizing President Trump and his administration.
