Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (page 1/5)

details...

Illustrations from Alice’s Aventures in Wonderland, or, Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Caroll (1866). The illustrations were done by Sir John Tenniel [1820 – 1914].

These images were scanned by Shawn Calvert from the 1898 edition (MacMillan & Co., London), who kindly contributed them. Liam Quin made the JPEG versions.

There are many copies of the Project Gutenberg scans of these illustrations on the web. These images are not derived from those; they were made by a professional graphic designer, at much higher resolution, and have much more detail.

Lewis Caroll was of course a penname (nom de plume) of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. The book was written after he and a friend, Rev. Robinson Duckworth, went on a trip in a rowing-boat at Oxford, on the River Thames, from Follie Bridge to Godstowe, near Oxford, together with three schoolgirls.

The North American Lewis Carrol Society has collected pointers to online Alice resources.

Alice grows huge again

“[...] before she had drunk half the bottle, she found her head pressing against the ceiling, and had to stoop to save her neck from being broken. She hastily put down the bottle, saying to herself ‘That’s quite enough—I hope I shan’t grow any more—As it is, I can’t get out at the door—I [...] [more...] [$]

Father William balances an eel on his nose

‘You are old,’ said the youth, ‘one would hardly suppose
    That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose—
    What made you so awfully clever?’ [more...] [$]
