Book Description

Signed first edition, wade for wabe on page 21. Inscribed on the half-title in purple ink: Elizabeth Ley Hussey from the Author, Christmas 1871. See Carroll's photograph reproduced here. The sitter, Elizabeth (also known as Bessie) Ley Hussey was one of his 'childhood' friends, this friendship appears to have lasted for three decades. When Dodgson arrived at Christ Church he stayed in rooms belonging to Jacob Ley, Elizabeth's uncle. Slight spotting, minimal restoration to the spine, a remarkably well preserved copy.
