Carroll, Lewis: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (illus-Rackham). v1. 10 Jan 2020

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
by Lewis Carroll (1832–1898)
“Proem” by Austin Dobson (1840–1921)
Illustrated by Arthur Rackham (1867–1939)

On a sleepy summer afternoon, Alice follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit-hole, and thus begins her astonishing adventures in Wonderland. More than 150 years after its first appearance, this delightful children’s classic is still beloved by readers of all ages. Charming illustrations by the incomparable artist Arthur Rackham can only add to the fun.

****************
Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898). He was an English writer of world-famous children’s fiction, creator of the Alice character in the “Wonderland” books. He was noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy, and wrote a number of poems in the genre of literary nonsense. He was also a mathematician, photographer, and Anglican deacon.

His best-known books include Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, Sylvie and Bruno, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, and The Hunting of the Snark. The last named, and “Jabberwocky” and “The Walrus and the Carpenter” from Through the Looking Glass, are premier examples of his nonsense poetry.

Many of Carroll’s “Wonderland” characters (such as the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the White Knight) have become so much a part of modern Western culture that they may be considered iconic.

****************
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was first published in 1865. The Rackham edition was first published in 1907. The text of this book is in the public domain worldwide. The illustrations are in the public domain where copyright is “Life+80” or less, and in the USA.


****************
Alice is always worthy of another visit -- especially when Rackham illustrates!
(Illustrations were a challenge -- not available from Internet Archive, only on blogs...)

I posted Alice and its sequel as a single file some time back. I don't recall whose illustrations were used in my version though. Of course I did post it way back
in 2011 so that may explain my forgetfulness. lol. Click

Hi crich. Your edition looks to be the original Tenniel illustrations.

I posted this one specifically because of the Arthur Rackham illustrations --- not nearly as many as Tenniel, but gorgeous all the same, and many of them in color.

(it was really just an excuse to read Alice again! ha!)

In any event the link will make it easier to be able to compare the two versions. Alice is always fun to run round Wonderland with.
