Victoria Through the Looking-Glass, The Life of Lewis Carroll (Signed copy)
Signed by Florence Becker Lennon to Menella Dodgson, Lewis Carroll's great-niece
First edition, second printing hardback with printed titling to spine. 20.5 × 14cm, 387pp.
Signed and dedicated by the author to Miss F Menella Dodgson to the ffep. Menella was Lewis Carroll's great-niece and is mentioned in the book (see image of index). This book comes from the London library of Professor Morton N Cohen the pre-eminent Lewis Carroll scholar and he has annotated the book several times to the margins. Prof Cohen hasn't signed the book but I can provide a letter of provenance if required.
A biography of Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland, including a time-table of Carroll's life and a brief bibliography.
A good copy. The binding is a little rubbed and dulled with a small tear at the head of the spine. The pages are tanned the inner binding sound but a little pulled in places. A previous owner (maybe Menella?) has pasted a Grandma Moses postcard and printed quotation from Florence Lennon to the dedication page.
