This talk by Mark J. Davies, author of “Alice in Waterland” and “Alice’s Oxford on Foot”, will feature the iconic ‘pictures’ of John Tenniel, those of Lewis Carroll, along with his photographs, and reference to the Pre-Raphaelite artists of whom Thomas Combe was a major patron.
Combe, Superintendent of Oxford University Press, oversaw the printing of the first 2,000 copies of the world’s most famous children’s story in June 1865, and also influenced its creation in several other ways.
