The Annotated Alice by Martin Gardner
From the publisher:
The culmination of a lifetime of scholarship, The Annotated Alice is a landmark event in the rich history of Lewis Carroll and cause to celebrate the remarkable career of Martin Gardner.
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 is Gardner’s most beautiful and enduring tribute to Carroll’s masterpieces yet. The redoubtable Gardner has been called by Douglas Hofstadter “one of the great intellects produced in this country in this century.” With The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition, we have this remarkable scholar’s crowning achievement.
