Lewis Carroll spells magic! The celebrated author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872), Charles Lutwidge Dodgson used the pen name Lewis Carroll to weave fanciful stories and poems for an appreciative world audience of children and adults. An English clergyman and mathematician, Dodgson's genius is illustrated by his creation of his pseudonym. He rendered his first two names into Latin and then anglicized them into Lewis Carroll. The first of his parents' 11 children, Carroll quickly became the family entertainer, as magician, puppeteer, and poet.

Now in one volume are Carroll's most acclaimed works: The Hunting of the Snark, Tangled Tales, Phantasmagoria, Nonsense from Letters, and certainly, the adventures of Alice. Included, too, are facsimiles of the memorable original illustrations for the Alice books by the eminent English Artist, Sir John Tenniel. Tenniel's drawings won instant renown for their perfect integration with the text. Other illustrations in this richly satisfying collection are by the well known artist, Henry Holiday.

This hardcover edition of Best of Lewis Carroll includes over five full Carroll stories and makes a lovely collector's volume for lifelong fans or new readers of Carroll. The acclaimed author was an Oxford scholar, a Church of England Deacon and an academic author and lecturer, and his gift with the English language is apparent in the famous works contained in this collection. This book will become a treasure in your own library. Lewis Carroll spells magic! Young and old will fall under his spell.

About the Author:

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was an English mathematician, photographer, and prolific writer, especially known for his beloved books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Preferring the company of children to adults, his Alice books were inspired by his friendship with the young Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, where Carroll was a mathematics instructor.
