Printing Details

First edition hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, xii + 404pp.

This copy comes from the London library of pre-eminent Lewis Carroll scholar Professor Morton N Cohen, and loosely inserted is a typed letter signed from the American publishers requesting a review.

In this biography, the author reveals Lewis Carroll as a man who faced what Robert Browning described as The Dangerous Edge of Things, closer to the underworld of psychopathology, crime and vice than his admirers thought possible, yet closer still to the golden afternoon of Wonderland.


The book is in very good condition, with a few marginal annotations by Professor Cohen. The dustwrapper is slightly creased along the top edge but is clean and has not been price-clipped.
