Overview

This book is a result of an effort made by us towards making a contribution to the preservation and repair of original classic literature.
In an attempt to preserve, improve and recreate the original content, we have worked towards:
1. Type-setting & Reformatting: The complete work has been re-designed via professional layout, formatting and type-setting tools to re-create the same edition with rich typography, graphics, high quality images, and table elements, giving our readers the feel of holding a 'fresh and newly' reprinted and/or revised edition, as opposed to other scanned & printed (Optical Character Recognition - OCR) reproductions.
2. Correction of imperfections: As the work was re-created from the scratch, therefore, it was vetted to rectify certain conventional norms with regard to typographical mistakes, hyphenations, punctuations, blurred images, missing content/pages, and/or other related subject matters, upon our consideration. Every attempt was made to rectify the imperfections related to omitted constructs in the original edition via other references. However, a few of such imperfections which could not be rectified due to intentional\unintentional omission of content in the original edition, were inherited and preserved from the original work to maintain the authenticity and construct, relevant to the work.
We believe that this work holds historical, cultural and/or intellectual importance in the literary works community, therefore despite the oddities, we accounted the work for print as a part of our continuing effort towards preservation of literary work and our contribution towards the development of the society as a whole, driven by our beliefs. We are grateful to our readers for putting their faith in us and accepting our imperfections with regard to preservation of the historical content. HAPPY READING!

Better known by his psuedonym, Lewis Carroll, Charles Dodgson wrote a great many things largely overlooked by the public. This was one of them, along with other things (written under his real name) like his books on mathematics and Euclid. Sylvie and Bruno and Sylvie and Bruno Concluded are two fantastic stories combining the usual Carroll nonsense with honest-to-goodness drama and even some reflective philosophical and theological ramblings. The two books absolutely destroy the Alice stories as art, but are probably not quite as well suited for children's reading.

Maybe Carroll's finest work... It is still directly like his Alice Stories... very strange book .. kind of post-modern but even before modernism.. i wonder if James Joyce ever read this... it somehow reminds Me of his And Pynchon's books... A Good story about two childrens adventures in separate and strange worlds .. does lose us in parts that are so open to interpretation that it could unfortunately Never Be As widely read as his famous work... being that some of what he is writing about has been lost with time.. but it is a must for any fan of great undiscovered work !

This work falls quite short of Carroll's other works. I would only recommend this to real die-hard Carroll fans who want to read the entire canon. Read 'The Hunting of the Snark' and 'Phantasmagoria' (and, of course, the Alice books) before you bother with this one.
