The annotated Alice: Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll( Book )

121 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first and only edition of Lewis Carroll's two masterpieces, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, that contains the full text, together with all of the original Tenniel illustrations in their correct places, and that adds to this a full annotation running concurrently with the text for the easiest possible reference. Here, the result of many years of research by an expert, is a running commentary on all the jokes, games, puzzles, tricks, parodies, obscure references and almost endless curiosities with which Carroll filled his writings. With this information a modern reader can appreciate this great and subtle book in a way that would be impossible otherwise
