Alice’s Adventures Underground

by Lewis Carroll

Later known as Alice in Wonderland, this is the original manuscript given by Lewis Carroll to Alice Liddell for Christmas 1864.One summer’s day in 1862, he took Alice and her sisters on a boat trip on the Thames by Oxford, where he taught as a mathematician. Along the way he entertained them with a fabulous story of Alice’s adventures in a magical world entered through a rabbit hole. Ten year-old Alice begged him to write it down, and eventually he did, giving her this meticulous manuscript of the tale for Christmas.

Lewis Carroll (the pen name for Charles Dodgson) was only later encouraged to rewrite the story and seek publication. It has gone on to become one of the best-loved children’s stories ever written and been filmed many times.

The manuscript is illustrated throughout by Dodgson, who later commissioned John Tenniel to come up with the drawings we are more familiar with, and even includes a small photograph of Alice on the last page.

This eBookTreasures version has transcription throughout as well as superb narration by Miriam Margoyles.
