As for https://librivox.org/the-hunting-of-the-snark-by-lewis-carroll-3/, I was an involuntary volunteer :).

That's fine with me. In 2012, I made that assemblage which is used as a cover illustration for that Librifox recording of Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark. Librivox used my assemblage, and for the assemblage I used two illustrations:Assembled scans from original 19th century sources:
  • Print The Beagle Laid Ashore based on a drawing (1834-04-16) by Conrad Martens, etching published in: Francis Darwin, Life and Letters of Charles Darwin , p. 160, 1888. Conrad Martens' drawing has been engraved by T. Landseer and published in the year 1838 by H. Colburn in The Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of HMS Adventure and Beagle.
  • Bellman, Banker and Beaver from illustrations by H. Holiday to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark, 1876
A high resolution rendering of the assemblage is available here: http://snrk.de/page_snark-assemblage.

Regards from Munich!

It's a great image. I didn't realise it was an assemblage , I just knew the parts were old enough to be PD.
I should have recognised the Beagle though. Are you happy for us to use it , and if so would you like me to add your name to the credits?

I never cease to be amazed at how quickly our designs turn up on google searches - I don't mind really except when youtube makers just distort the square to make a rectangle

Yes, I am happy. Probably that illustration has been taken from my on-line edition of The Hunting of the Snark. I am fine with that. I think, that I even gave my consent already some time ago, but I am too lazy to search that in my emails now.

As for credits, I propose: "Assembly (2012) by Goetz Kluge from illustrations by Conrad Martens (1834) and Henry Holiday (1876)".
