The original Alice in Wonderland


In 1862, a young mathematician by the name of Charles Dodgson, better-known as Lewis Carroll, took a boat trip with a friend’s three young daughters. One of them, Alice Liddell pictured above, inspired a story he told on the boat. She loved it so much, she begged him to write it down.

Eventually, in November 1864, he presented her with a handwritten, illustrated manuscript entitled Alice’s Adventures Under Ground dedicating it as “A Christmas Gift to a Dear Child in Memory of a Summer’s Day”. A year later, after the possible alternative titles Alice Among the Fairies and Alice’s Golden Hour were rejected, the manuscript was published as Alice in Wonderland.
