This year Alice turns 150 years old and to celebrate there have been numerous collector's and special editions published. This is the one you *need* to own. Just pick it up, feel the weight of it, the texture, go ahead, smell it. This book screams COLLECTOR. The text is the same story you've always known and loved, but this is Alice as you've never seen her before. Illustrated by the beloved surrealist Salvador Dali, this book is sure to delight the artist, the bibliophile, and somewhat surprisingly, the mathematician on your list.

Description


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre, and its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (7 January 1832 ? 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and its sequel "Through the Looking-Glass", as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all examples of the genre of "literary nonsense".
