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.

There could be no doubt that it had a very turn-up nose, much more like a snout than a real nose; also its eyes were getting extremely small for a baby: altogether Alice did not like the look of the thing at all. ‘But perhaps it was only sobbing,’ she thought, and looked [...] [more...] [$]

“Presently the Rabbit came up to the door, and tried to open it; but, as the door opened inwards, and Alice’s elbow was pressed hard against it, that attempt proved a failure. Alice heard it say to itself ‘Then [...] [more...] [$]
