The illustrations, along with those from Alice In Wonderland, helped to make John Tenniel famous; less well-known is that the pictures were engraved (in order to print them) onto wood by the Dalziel brothers.

White Pawn (Alice) to play, and win in eleven moves.

This is a diagram of a chess-board, the sort one finds printed in newspapers as puzzles, with a summary of the “game” that also serves as a table of contents for the book. [more...] [$]

[picture: The Queen kept crying `Faster! Faster!']

The Queen kept crying ‘Faster! Faster!’
