Read full description of the books Alice's Adventures Under Ground:This is the real Alice as photographed by Lewis Carroll back in the 1860s:
I suspect Humbert Humbert would approve...
Unsubstantiated rumors aside, this is a wonderful replica of the original book that Carroll hand wrote and illustrated himself as a gift for the young Alice. You can see the original manuscript at the British Library which has been a highlight of all my trips to London. Hopefully they've cleaned up the drool I left on the glass case when I was last there ogling it.
This book is only about half the length of the eventually published version that is beloved by so many but it's clear already why everyone encouraged him to go ahead and get it out there for the general public. Most of what is here is in the final version with only a few minor changes and several significant additional adventures added. The Mad Hatter, the Duchess and the Cheshire Cat are notably absent from this early version but the general framework of the story is firmly in place. Carroll's illustrations are amateurish however they still possess a charm all their own.
This book is a must for the serious Alice fan and stands completely on its own even if you haven't read the "official" version. And seriously, if you haven't read the official version then get to it my friend, NOW!
If Carroll had given me a book like this when I was little, I would have let him take my picture...
Read information about the authorThe Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.
He also has works published under his real name.
