This was evidently published in Harpers in 1847. I don’t have any further information or verification of that, but it certainly is from a magazine of that period.

I would suggest that this was the source for Dalí’s dream sequence in Spell Bound.

The narrative content of the dream is strikingly similar, as is the artwork.

Dalí would hardly have been above such ‘borrowing’ (which is a euphemism).

The Surrealists loved to reuse these old magazine engravings, as in the collage work of Ernst and Klinger.
