Author information

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games and charming letters. As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872. The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. His humour, sparkling wit and genius have lasted for more than a century and his books are among the most quoted works in the English language.

Not only is this book completely beautiful to behold, with the eye catching cover, but the contents are so amazing and complete. It includes the famous "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Alice's Through the Looking Glass" stories which are complete with the original illustrations and unabridged text, along with all of Lewis Carroll's other complete stories, poems, puzzles and notes which are all just as clever and charming as his more well known works.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Through the Looking-Glass, and what Alice found there
Sylvie and Bruno
Sylvie and Bruno Concluded
The Hunting of the Snark
A collection of verses
Puzzles and Solutions from Wonderland

V1. Stories:

I can't list all of the poems and works but I think that gives you a good overview of the contents. Its truly a wonderful book, and I can see a lot of time and care went into collecting and putting all of Lewis' fantastic writings together.
As for the cover of the book it is Beautiful! The deep pink leather against the black and gold details looks very lovely, the spine equally so ( it looks great on my shelf). The pages have gold gilded edges and there is also a gold ribbon book mark attached too. The end papers have lovely illustrated imagines of the Alice book characters is is charming and colourful. For the price it really is a steal.
This is must have book for your collection, good for children and adults alike and would make a fantastic gift (it was a Christmas gift for me, and I was so thankful and overjoyed to receive it! :D ). I can't recommend this book more highly, and when you see it in person I think you will understand why.
