Many millions know and love the tale of Alice`s Adventures in Wonderland, but how many know the original story behind the famous book? It all began one`golden afternoon`in Oxford, in July 1862, when three young Liddell sisters set out on a boating trip, accompanied by the Reverends Robinson, Duckworth, and Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. To keep the children amused, Dodgson, a diffident young math tutor, began to tell a tale about an inquisitive youngster, Alice, and her escapades in an underground world. Dodgson spun out the`interminable fairy-tale`until Alice Liddell the heroine of the tale implored him to write it down, and two years later, on November 26, 1864, he sent Alice an early`Christmas gift for a dear child.`In this superb facsimile of Dodgson`s manuscript now one of the British Library`s most treasured possessions modern readers can enjoy the expressive script and vibrant illustrations of the original. In an accompanying commentary, Sally Brown sketches a portrayal of Dodgson, and traces the stages through which the story passed as it was revised, expanded, illustrated by the Punch cartoonist John Tenniel, and finally published as Alice`s Adventures in Wonderland, under the celebrated pen-name Lewis Carroll.
