The bibliography lists 109 numbered entries for works Hendriksen wrote or to which he contributed, plus seven unnumbered entries for works in which he was associated. "Never, I think, has there been a wood engraver who, apparently, so reverently and faithfully followed the lines, whether pencil, pen, or brush, more truly than Hendriksen. His power of rendering the look of a medium is astounding." (Pennell, Pen Drawing and Pen Draughtsmen, pp. 207-210). N. B.
