This is a fun little book for any Alice collector or Carroll fan. It was published by the The British Library to supplement the original "Alice's Adventures Underground" manuscript which is one of their "most treasured possessions".

I appreciate that rather than just re-telling the story of the boat ride on that "golden afternoon" (which seems to be included in the preface to any given edition nowadays) this book traces the entire history of the manuscript from Carroll's initial introductions to the Liddell family to Alice Liddell's sale and its subsequent auctions.

At only 64 pages, this is far from a definitive work on the subject, but it contains many photographs (some taken by Dodgson himself) and packs in quite a lot of information for a quick read. ( )
