A new edition from Last Word Press of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures Underground, in the author's original handwriting, with accompanying illustrations. Published in Olympia, Washington at Last Word Books & Press in 2014. Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Perfectbound trade paperback binding. In 1865, Lewis Carroll published "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Two years before that, however, on 26 November 1864, Carroll gave Alice the handwritten manuscript of "Alice's Adventures under Ground", with illustrations Carroll had drawn himself. At Christmas 1886, the manuscript was published in a facsimile edition. Several further facsimile editions have since appeared, and in them all, Carroll's careful handwriting can be seen. It is certainly well worth reading, although it is shorter than the final form of the story-the later "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" being about twice the length of the original "Alice's Adventures under Ground".
