Summary "Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - known better as Lewis Carroll - was a 19th century English logician, mathematician, photographer, and novelist especially remembered for his children's tale Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass. By the turn of the century the two had together become the most popular children's book in England. Later it became perhaps the most famous in the world." "This book presents a complete catalogue of Dodgson's personal library, with attention to every book the author is known to have owned or read: a vast array of academic interests including homeopathic medicine, spiritualism, astrology, evolution, women's rights, children's literature, linguistics, theology, eugenics, and many others. Entries alphabetized by title describe each book, its edition, its contents, its importance, and the relevance it might have had to Dodgson. The library not only provides a plethora of fodder for further study on the man, but would also aid research into the late Victorian world, a time of unprecedented investigation, experimentation, invention, and imagination."--BOOK JACKET.
