Overview

The story of Lewis Carroll is here told for young people by the real Alice in Wonderland, Miss Isa Bowman, with a diary and numerous facsimile letters written to her and others. There are also many sketches and photos by Lewis Carroll, as well as other illustrations.
The Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson died when he was sixty-six years old, and when his famous book, Alice in Wonderland, had been published for thirty-three years.
At Oxford he won great distinction as a scholar of mathematics, and wrote many abstruse and learned books, very different from Alice in Wonderland. There is a tale that when Queen Victoria had read Alice in Wonderland she was so pleased that she asked for more books by the same author. Lewis Carroll was written to, and back, with the name of Charles Dodgson on the title page, came a number of the very dryest books about algebra and Euclid that you can imagine.
