reblog if you’ve ever read sylvie and bruno

i wanna see how many of us there are

Not nearly enough of us. I’m reblogging 7 months after the op, with only 2 notes. :(

But then, if it were as popular as Alice, I would have had to spend 2 or 3 times as much for 1st / early editions as I just did.

The story can be difficult and some may think it boring, and it doesn’t really have a climax -

but it is just so utterly charming!

Take it as it was written - as a series of moments that were all put together after the fact. Then it’s a little easier to understand.

THESE BOOKS!

They will be mine! FINALLY! Lewis Carroll 1st edition (or near enough to make no difference to me), with illustrations by Harry Furniss. (EDIT: okay, not 1st edition, but ‘People’s Edition’. But that’s fine by me! It still feels like a first ed. because that’s the first one the regular folk could afford. And they’re still pre-1900.)

But I had to purchase them from a bookseller in England and I couldn’t afford to upgrade to airmail, so… It’s going to be a loooong wait until they get here. Possibly two months.

BUT THEY WILL BE MINE AND I AM DANCING AND I CAN’T WAIT! GAAHHH! *squee*

The British Library has posted online scans of the original manuscript of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures Under Ground.
Be prepared to lose a couple hours.

It also should be noted that Lewis Carroll himself did all the drawings in this manuscript. His mock turtle and griffin is one of my all time favourite pieces.
