Browse our fine collection of Lewis Carroll first edition books and signed poetry including Alice in Wonderland (1871) and the sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, more commonly known as Lewis Carroll, was born in 1837 and quickly proved to be a precocious child.

The young Charles was from an early age taken with logarithms, puzzles, conjuring, artistic and literary pursuits, all of which were to serve him well as an author both for children and adults in later years.

His enthusiasm for emerging science, art & music, as well as hobbies such as photography, along with his keen interest in social and political reform, was tempered by his sincere Christian faith, and can all be found as influences in his writing, ranging from his children’s stories to his more mature poetry, redolent with romantic conventions and a Victorian sentimentality very much of its time.
