For over half a century, Martin Gardner has established himself as one of the world''s 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 Carroll''s two classic stories: Alice''s 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 Gardner''s 1960 edition with his 1990 update, More Annotated Alice, as well as additional new discoveries and updates drawn from Gardner''s encyclopedic knowledge of the texts. Illustrated with John Tenniel''s classic and beloved art -- along with many recently discovered Tenniel pencil sketches -- The Annotated Alice will be Gardner''s most beautiful and enduring tribute to Carroll''s masterpieces yet.

About the Author

Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford.

Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll.

So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize. Martin Gardner is the author of more than seventy books on a vast range o
