Some brief overview of this book

For over half a century, Martin Gardner has established himself as one of the worlds leading authorities on Lewis Carroll. His Annotated Alice, first published in 1960, has over half a million copies in print around the world and is highly sought after by families and scholars alike—for it was Gardner who first decoded the wordplay and the many mathematical riddles that lie embedded in Carrolls two classic stories: Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Forty years after this groundbreaking publication, Norton is proud to publish the Definitive Edition of The Annotated Alice, a work that combines the notes of Gardners 1960 edition with his 1990 update, More Annotated Alice, as well as additional new discoveries and updates drawn from Gardners encyclopedic knowledge of the texts. Illustrated with John Tenniels classic and beloved art—along with many recently discovered Tenniel pencil sketches—The Annotated Alice is Gardners most beautiful and enduring tribute to Carrolls masterpieces yet. The redoubtable Gardner has been called by Douglas Hofstadter one of the great intellects produced in this country in this century. With The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition, we have this remarkable scholars crowning achievement.

A few words about book's author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests - in mathematics, logic, photography, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alices Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue todays students. Sylvie and Bruno,published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.
