LC's luck

Postby Treacle » Thu Jul 09, 2015 3:44 pm

One of the (I think) under-appreciated books in the library in which I work is a copy of the 1851 Liddell and Scott Greek-English lexicon. Were it not for that book, Henry Liddell would likely not have been made Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, and, consequently, there would have been no Alice books as we know them.

There can't be many books like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that have, in effect, had the stars and planets line up for them so fortunately.

On the other hand, he had the really rotten luck to have Stuart Collingwood as a biographer with Reed, Taylor and Hudson to follow. I guess what goes around comes around.
