From a facsimile edition of ALICE'S ADVENTURES UNDER GROUND (Henry Holt: $13.95), text and illustrations by Lewis Carroll.

March 09, 1986

This is the original, hand-lettered work that was to grow into "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." The manuscript was sold to an American collector in 1928, then bought by Luther H. Evans, the librarian of Congress, in 1945 and returned to the British "as the slightest token of recognition for the fact that they held off Hitler while we got ready for war." The facsimile was prepared with the cooperation of the British Museum.
