Description

Later known as Alice in Wonderland, this is the original hand-written manuscript given by Lewis Carroll to Alice Liddell for Christmas 1864, currently held at the British Library. Each page has been meticulously photographed in full colour to produce this digital edition.

One summer's day in 1862, Lewis Carroll took Alice and her sisters on a boat trip on the Thames by Oxford, where he taught as a mathematician. Along the way he entertained them with a fabulous story of Alice's adventures in a magical world entered through a rabbit hole. Ten year-old Alice begged him to write it down, and eventually he did, giving her this manuscript of the tale for Christmas.

Lewis Carroll (the pen name for Charles Dodgson) was only later encouraged to rewrite the story and publish it. It has gone on to become one of the best-loved children's stories ever written and been filmed many times.

The manuscript is illustrated throughout by Dodgson, who later commissioned John Tenniel to come up with the drawings we are more familiar with, and even includes a small photograph of Alice on the last page.

This extraordinary digital edition is part of the eBookTreasures series which aims to produce digital editions of some of the great books of the world.
