Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, vi, 117 pp, ills. "The Writing Career of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson ("Lewis Carroll") began and ended with his contributions to periodicals. Between 1843, when he wrote a story for his grammar school magazine, until his death in 1898, he published over 300 items in magazines, journals, and newspapers. For the first time these writings are fully listed, described, annotated, and indexed by Carroll scholar Charles Lovett in Lewis Carroll & The Press. This comprehensive new work not only provides bibliographical details lacking from previous studies, it describes Dodgson's letters, articles, games, mathematical problems, relationship with the public through the press. Previously unknown Dodgson items are brought to light in this listing, andnumerous early reprints are recorded for the first time. Dodgson's word puzzles 'Doublets' and 'Syzygies,' which were published on a continuing basis in Vanity Fair and The Lady, are fully described for the first time, and dozens of previously unknown Doublet and Syzygy problems are reprinted. The annotations, too, are replete with previously unpublished information. Lovett's introductory essay discusses Dodgson's career as both a reader of periodicals and a contributor to them, and quotes extensively from some of the 'lost' periodical contributions - Dodgson material which has not been reprinted since its original appearance. The essay also identifies a previously unknown Lewis Carroll parody and suggests a possible inspiration for Through the Looking Glass. Its wealth of new material and its full and prper description of what has so often been neglected in the past make Lewis Carroll and the Press an invaluable reference for librarians, scholars, students, professors, collectors , and booksellers." - from the blurb.
