Lewis Carroll's eight-canto nonsense poem, which describes the sea voyage of a bellman, boots (bootblack), bonnet maker, barrister, broker, billiard marker, banker, beaver, baker, and butcher, and their search for the elusive, undefined snark.
While scholars have attributed to the work hidden meanings from political subversion to existential agony, Carroll maintained that it was intended simply as nonsense
An annotated version of the Hunting of the Snark
Carroll's satirical poem; a humorous story of an annoying ghost that is assigned to haunt a new house.
While the owner wishes the ghost would simply leave, the ghost politely informs the man of the many types of spectres and their duties, which include scaring people, making them ill, and causing mysterious disturbances.
Several poems by Lewis Carroll, which include Phantasmagoria, Hiawatha's Photographing, Melancholetta, Size and Tears, The Lang Coortin', and Fame's Penny Trumpet.
Including black and white illustrations by Arthur B. Frost, and a short introduction with letters from Carroll to Frost regarding the art, and to a friend with regards to para-psychological phenomena.
A story that Carroll wrote for children, but was generally considered a failure. Carroll inserted religious aspects and the book is therefore full of morals.
There is a second part of this book, called 'Sylvie and Bruno concluded'.
The second part of "Sylvie and Bruno"
Includes poems and nonsense verses that appear in "Alice in Wonderland" and other works of the author.
This book contains almost every poem that Carroll ever wrote.
It includes every poem appearing in his books published during his life, privately printed poems, ephemera, poems from manuscripts found among his papers, and from 'The Rectory Magazine,' Collingwood's 'Lewis Carroll Picture Book,' 'Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll,' and rare 19th century periodicals.
Several letters Carroll wrote to his child-friends, together with "Eight Or Nine Wise Words About Letter-Writing".
by: Martin Gardner
Lewis Carroll was also famous for his puns, anagrams, acrostics and riddles. In this book, Martin Gardner (the preeminent writer on recreational mathematics of our time) has gathered many of Carroll's inventions, ranging from games such as "arithmetical croquet" to important problems in symbolic logic and propositional calculus.
by: Lewis Carroll, C. L. Dodgson
A combination of two of Carroll's works about problems in recreational mathematics.
42 Games and puzzles by Carroll, including Cakes in a Row, Alice's Multiplication Tables, Looking-Glass Time, Arithmetical Croquet, Four Brothers and a Monkey, Hidden Names, Diverse Doublets, and Mischmasch. Many hints and solutions.
42 intruiging puzzles by Carroll, just like the book "Lewis Carroll's Games and Puzzles".
This edition includes among others Castle Croquet, A Sticky but Polished Riddle, Who's Coming to Dinner?, A New Way to Pay Old Debts, Eligible Apartments, Predicting the Total, and more.
Don't let the title of the first work mislead you - this isn't about modern symbolic logic but about ways of expressing classical logic with symbols. It's loaded with amusing problems to delight any mathematical puzzler.
In the second work, Carroll turns logic into a game played with diagrams and colored counters, giving you hundreds of challenging and witty syllogisms to solve.
Originally these books were intended for children.
