Lewis Carroll is a pen-name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was the authors real name and he was lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford. Dodgson began the story on 4 July 1862, when he took a journey in a rowing boat on the river Thames in Oxford together with the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, with Alice Liddell (ten years of age) the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and with her two sisters, Lorina (thirteen years of age), and Edith (eight years of age). As is clear from the poem at the beginning of the book, the three girls asked Dodgson for a story and reluctantly at first he began to tell the first version of the story to them. There are many half-hidden references made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. The text for this edition makes some alterations to Lewis Carrolls final revised text in order to correct some inconsistencies which remained, or which appear to have been introduced, by Carroll in 1897. In the Evertype definitive text the aim has been to establish (or re-establish) clarity and consistency where it was lacking, while conserving the idiosyncrasies of Carrolls writing which have delighted readers for a century and a half. The illustrations in this volume were prepared in 1908 by Harry Furniss, who had previously illustrated Carrolls "Silvie and Bruno". The book has an introduction about Furnisss work by noted Carrollian scholars, Selwyn Goodacre and Edward Wakeling.
