Lewis Carroll's spat in the Eastbourne Chronicle in 1877
First edition. Paperback with stapled binding, limited to 150 copies. 21 × 13.5cm, 13 pages.
Reprinted here for the first time, these are three letters from Lewis Carroll on the subject of anti-vaccination which he sent to the Eastbourne Chronicle. The letters were written after the case of a local grocer who had refused to have his youngest child vaccinated was prosecuted and a man named Mr Hume-Rothery wrote in his defence. Lewis Carroll took up the fight with him sending these three letters, Hume-Rothery responded with increasing rudeness and the Editor had to intervene... This booklet only contains Lewis Carroll's letters.
Good plus condition, with a little age-toning to the pages.
