Happy Halloween everybody! I hope you all have a great and scary night…
At 7 November 2015 there will be a Lewis Carroll Study Day in the UK, organized by the Lewis Carroll Society and the Surrey History Centre.
The following talks are part of the programme:
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.
