Description

This deluxe edition includes all of Carroll’s major fiction and poetry, including Alice and Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, the facsimile of the manuscript of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground in Carroll’s handwriting and with his own drawings. Also included are a biographical chronology of Lewis Carroll’s life, and a selected biography.
This beautiful, 868-page leather-bound volume contains a delightful collection of stories from one of history’s most beloved children’s authors. Lewis Carroll’s stories are still as fresh and appealing as when they were first published more than a century ago. John Tenniel’s original illustrations accompany the Alice stories and bring to life the wildly popular characters so well known to us all: the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, and a passel of others.

Carroll, one of 11 children, knows his audience well. His stories–clever, provocative, and bizarre–capture the imaginations of children worldwide. Though a prolific storyteller from childhood, he went on to become a mathematician, a fact evidenced by the Tangled Tales serial, which contains a mathematical equation in each installment.

Other stories included in this collection are “The Hunting of the Snark,” which was composed backward, in a sense, when inspiration for the tale came by way of the last line; “Rhyme? And Reason?”; the Sylvie and Bruno books; and the original Alice story, “Alice’s Adventures Underground,” penned and illustrated in Carroll’s own hand. Two never-before-printed poems, originally inscribed in two storybooks and presented as mementos to a little girl and boy, conclude this enchanting collection.
