Lewis Carroll

I found an on-line copy of Alice's Adventures under Ground. This was an early manuscript of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Carroll hand wrote the manuscript, and included 37 illustrations which he drew himself. He supposedly presented the copy to Alice as a Christmas gift on November 26th, 1864.

Carroll's drawings are not as polished as the Tenniel illustrations, but to me they are far more interesting and in keeping with the character of the story. I especially like the distorted Alices and the Father William illustration (spread #27).
