Collection: Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll (1832–1898; pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) was born in 1832. The son of a clergyman, he became a clergyman himself in 1861, but preached only occasionally and spent his life as a don at Christ Church, Oxford, where he taught mathematics. He published Alice in Wonderland in 1865, when he was only 33, and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There six years later. He died in 1898 and is buried in Guilford, United Kingdom.
