Searching for: "Lewis Carroll"

  • Lewis Carroll

    This is the handwritten book that Carroll wrote for private use before being urged to develop it later into Alice in Wonderland. It was generously illustrated by Carrol and meant to entertain his family and friends. When a sick child in a hospital enjoyed it so much, the mother wrote him saying it had distracted her for a bit from her pain and led eventually to Carroll expanding the story. The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed in a boat, on 4 July 1862,[12] up the Isis with the three young daughters of Henry Liddell, (the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University and Dean of Christ Church) : Lorina Charlotte Liddell (aged 13, born 1849); Alice...read more

    Many a day we rowed together on that quiet stream…and many a fairy tale had been extemporized…yet none of these tales got written down: they lived and died…each in its own golden afternoon until there came a day when, as it chanced, one of the listeners petitioned that the tale might be written down for her. Thus, in 1864, Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson (under the pen name of Lewis Carroll) presented family friend, Alice Liddell with the first edition of what would become the inimitable classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Seven years after Alice’s success, Carroll published Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, the equally beloved sequel. Freshly and...read more

    Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the river bank, and of having nothing to do...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran by her. Alice did not think it so very strange to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and then hurried on, she started to wonder! Running after the strange fellow, she was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole. Down jumped Alice after it (never considering how in the world she was to get out again) and she tumbled into a curious world inhabited by the Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat,...read more
