9780712356008: Alice's Adventures Under Ground: The Original Manuscript

Many millions know and love the tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but how many know the original story behind the famous book? It all began one "golden afternoon" in Oxford, in July 1862, when three young Liddell sisters set out on a boating trip, accompanied by the Reverends Robinson, Duckworth, and Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. To keep the children amused, Dodgson, a diffident young math tutor, began to tell a tale about an inquisitive youngster, Alice, and her escapades in an underground world. Dodgson spun out the "interminable fairy-tale" until Alice Liddell—the heroine of the tale—implored him to write it down, and two years later, on November 26, 1864, he sent Alice an early "Christmas gift for a dear child." In this superb facsimile of Dodgson's manuscript—now one of the British Library's most treasured possessions—modern readers can enjoy the expressive script and vibrant illustrations of the original. In an accompanying commentary, Sally Brown sketches a portrayal of Dodgson, and traces the stages through which the story passed as it was revised, expanded, illustrated by the Punch cartoonist John Tenniel, and finally published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, under the celebrated pen-name Lewis Carroll.
