Handy new website about Lewis Carroll 1st Editions

Geoff Martin from the UK Lewis Carroll Society has a new website called Lewis Carroll 1st Editions. It contains many pictures and expanding encyclopedic information about its titular subject.

‘The Nursery Alice’ was first printed in 1889 but Carroll didn’t like the pictures, ‘too bright and gaugy’,¬†some sheets were sent to America and some were used for the People’s Edition in 1891. The book below is the Second but first published edition dated 1890. 10.000 copie were printed but sales were slow so some became the 2nd people’s edition.
