According to Google, I can make people with a Google account "approved" reviewers. This means the person gets to see the whole book. It also means you, the person, telling me your email address so I can put you down as an approved reviewer.

(If it helps any, I promise to use the email address once, then lose it.)

I am making this offer because it seems that this 2013 ebook will not be released for sale this year.

Here's a link to the pdf form of the book as promised, via dropbox:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rwsoprtac6ztp ... t.pdf?dl=0

This is a way to have all the pictures in one download, in an edition of AAiW that turned out nicely with the help of a lot of people! (I did it for Lenny and the members of the forum, who are my Lewis Carroll friends.)

I know that a book you can't see except on screen is hard to think of as being real, but this one at least looks like a real book once it's on screen.

[No book is perfect, so I'll replace the ebook in the Drop Box with its ever-so-slightly corrected self as I find proofing errors. For example, I find that instead of "Ah, cruel Three!" I didn't capitalize 'three'. This is a luxury published books don't have unless you happen to have been Lewis Carroll who edited later editions. In this case I want to be true to the 1866 Macmillan text.]

If by chance you find you want to make a comment about the Rolen Alice after downloading a copy of it, please do, here under "J. Michael Rolen Illustrations". (If the forum is too public, there's the private message option. I'll pass the message along to him.)

12/1/2015. On the other hand, a thing that looks like a printed book on the screen but barely exists otherwise is very like a grin without a cat, an awkward idea to Alice and the reader. Books can be touched and put on a shelf, can be bought and sold, and found in libraries and used book stores. The Rolen Alice PDF is in that sense a 21st century anomaly. Sorry about that :P

(A grin without a cat is a good thing for an e-book of AAiW to be like.)

FYI

I don't know when the collection will show up online in the library's archives index, but yesterday I gave the Rolen Alice pen-and-ink drawings, and associated materials, to the Oklahoma Historical Society. The editions people see now are recent, but the original drawings are not: they have ink burn and the paper is turning yellow. It was time to retire them, and work from scans.
