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.

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

“There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. ‘Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse,’ thought Alice; [...] [more...] [$]

Alice (with flamingo) chats with the Duchess

‘I dare say you’re wondering why I don’t put my arm round your waist,’ the Duchess said after a pause: ‘the reason is, that I’m doubtful about the temper of your flamingo. Shall I try the experiment?’ [more...] [$]

Drink Me

“There seemed to be no use in waiting by the little door, so she went back to the table, half hoping she might find another key on it, or at any rate a book of rules for shutting people up like telescopes: this time she found a little bottle on it, (‘which certainly was not here before,’ said Alice,) and round the neck of the bottle was [...] [more...] [$]
