About this Item

8.5 x 11 inches. hardcover, dust jacket. 274 pages. First edition. Byron Sewell and Clare Imholtz have compiled a comprehensive international bibliography of over 1000 entries listing all known editions of Lewis Carroll's Sylvie & Bruno books, their translations into foreign languages, excerpts from them, the appearance of their poems in anthologies, critical articles and studies, parodies, and much more. This book establishes for the first time the full bibliographic record of these long-neglected works by Carroll, including several little-known bibliographic rarities. Because this is a truly comprehensive bibliography, with a great breadth of citations, it will almost certainly become an important reference work, not only for Carrollians, but also for other bibliographers and students of Victorian and later literature. This descriptive bibliography will introduce many of its readers to the important techniques of the novels, with their multiple and shifting levels of reality, and the delightful nonsense of the Mad Gardener's song and other poems in the books. The bibliography includes a 30-page scholarly essay by Anne Clark Amor, one of Britain's foremost Carroll scholars, as well as a complete list of the recipients of Lewis Carroll's presentations of the two books, the latter compiled by Carroll scholar and editor of the acclaimed new unexpurgated edition of his diaries, Edward Wakeling. In identifying the riches to be found in the bibliographic outlands of Carroll's Sylvie & Bruno books, Sewell and Imholtz have demonstrated that there has been far greater interest in them than has generally been recognized. The bibliography reveals the many literary and cultural figures who have commented on, disparaged, imitated, parodied, quoted or in some other way drawn upon the Sylvie books, including: T.S. Eliot, Harold Bloom, Jorge Luis Borges, G.K. Chesterton, James Joyce, Ogden Nash, Elizabeth Sewell and Evelyn Waugh, among others. Both authors are well-known among Lewis Carroll collectors and scholars. In 1992, Byron Sewell published, in a very limited edition, Much of a Muchness: A Survey of the American Editions of the Alice Books Published from 1866-1960. He is one of the co-authors of a recent Lewis Carroll Comic Book Bibliography and has written numerous bibliographic articles. Clare Imholtz has written several articles on Carroll that have been published in Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America, The Carrollian, The Lewis Carroll Review and other journals. The extent and thoroughness of the bibliography is in no small part due to the wonderful cooperation the bibliographers received from Carroll collectors and scholars in Great Britain, Japan, Russia, Finland, France, the United States and elsewhere.
