A beautiful edition with 42 classic illustrations by John Tenniel.
SeaWolf Press is proud to offer another book in its Illustrated Classics Collection.
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote this wonderful tale under the pen-name of Lewis Carroll. It was written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of a fellow college professor at the University of Oxford in England and first published in 1865. It is often classified in the literary nonsense genre. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The story is deeply entrenched in the popular culture and has been made into movies, theme park rides, and even referenced in song. You can’t forget the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts. Carroll followed up this book with a sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.
