Alice's adventures in Wonderland

Collection Data

Description
One of the most popular works of English fiction, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was written by Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Based on a story he created to amuse some young friends, it describes the adventures of a young girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world, and the illustrations by John Tenniel have become as iconic as the characters they depict.
