Catalogue Note

First published, as a black and white drawing, in the 1898 J.M. Dent edition of The Ingoldsby Legends (page 465). Rackham undertook a "careful overhauling" of the book in which "many of the pen drawings have been reconsidered and worked on again..." Accordingly, this drawing was reproduced, now in colour, opposite page 396 in the 1907 edition of The Ingoldsby Legends (J.M. Dent and E.P. Dutton).

The illustration, being one of 24 colour plates within the 1907 edition, accompanies 'The Lay of St. Aloys' which is subtitled 'A Legend of Blois'.
