from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • To add illustrations to (a book) after it is printed, by pasting or binding them in.

  • No novel even of the author's is fuller of _vignettes_ -- little pictures of action and behaviour, of manners and society, which are not in the least irrelevant to the general story, but on the contrary extra-illustrate and carry it out.
