Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for LEWIS CARROLL: AN ILLUSTRATED BIOGRAPHY by Derek Hudson.

A detailed account of the life of the nineteenth-century English writer and mathematician, lavishly illustrated with drawings by Carroll and others and photographs of Carroll's contemporaries. reviews:

"On balance this is probably the best Lewis Carroll biography, but the style is too excitable. Serious writing shouldn't have this many exclamation marks. However, Hudson was the first biographer to call his readers' attention to Cakeless, * so credit where it's due.

"It's a shame this biography has fallen out of print, as it offers a fairly balanced view on the life of Lewis Carroll, otherwise known as Charles Dodgson. One of the more interesting themes explored is the separation between these two lives, which only adds to the complexity and contradiction that define Dodgson's character. Clearly well-researched, Hudson does succumb to the usual mythologizing, but he takes a careful approach and gives a much fuller picture than Carroll is sometimes afforded. For fans of Carroll's work, this book is worth hunting down."
