On 4th July 1862, which he later remembered as a "golden afternoon", the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a young mathematics tutor at Christ Church, Oxford, entertained three little girls on a river trip with a "fairy tale", which was to become one of the most famous children's stories of all time. Two years later, Alice, the heroine of the tale, received a handwritten volume, with Dodgson's own pen and ink drawings, entitled "Alice's Adventures Under Ground". Containing some of the illustrations from the original manuscript, this gift book tells the story of Charles Dodgson's lifelong devotion to Alice, and traces the stages through which the manuscript progressed, as it was expanded, given new illustrations by John Tenniel, and finally published, under the pseudonym "Lewis Carroll".
