The brothers DALZIEL were the platemakers who did Sir John Tenniel's pre-press, engraving his famous Alice illustrations on wood for publication. For instance, in the Jabberwock plate, their name is just to the right of Tenniel's famous monogram, bottom left. Curiously, the original plates, long in the public domain, nowhere mention the Brothers Disney, who were not Irish either.

Erin go bragh!
