Notes

Presentation copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Mary Trimmer, from the author." Dodgson had lunch with Mary's family on 6 August 1868; her father was Revd. Trimmer, Rector of St Mary, Guildford, and Carroll later photographed Mary. A beautifully bound set of these later printings (Alice's Adventures was first published in 1866; Alice Through the Looking Glass in 1872).
