Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, xxiii + 577pp.

This copy comes from Morton Cohen's London library, and whilst not signed, there is a loosely inserted letter to him from Oxford historian John Mason (1920–2009), with reference to a talk of Lewis Carroll.

This monumental biography was prompted by Morton N. Cohen's belief that the Carroll revealed by the letters, diaries and works was not the same as the Carroll created by his biographers, and it was time to set the record straight. He traces the dual careers of Charles Dodgson, Fellow of Christ Church, Oxford, who made important contributions to mathematics and logic and to the life of the University, as well as being one of the pioneers of photography in Victorian England, and forging strong friendships with children, and of Lewis Carroll, creator of Alice in Wonderland and The Hunting of the Snark, acknowledged masterpieces we still read today and precursors of surrealist writing. No biographer has addressed so judiciously the inner divisions which proved such a creative spur to Carroll's imagination and his genius.
