At Castle Chillon, whose turrets rise dreamlike from Lake Geneva, waves lap right outside the barred windows of its dungeon; the imposing fortress still attracts curious writers and tourists. This 1832 engraving by Edward Francis Finden (1791–1857), after the artist James Duffield Harding (1798–1863) and a sketch by W. Page, was taken from the volume Finden's landscape illustrations to Mr. Murray's first complete and uniform edition of the life and works of Lord Byron. NYPL, Picture Collection
