Symbolic Logic/ Game of Logic

Symbolic Logic/ Game of Logic by Lewis Carroll.

Dover Publications, 2000 reprint of 1958 original. Originally published as two volumes by Macmillan in 1887 and 1897.

From the cover:

The two works reprinted in this volume are a unique fusion of logical thought and inimitable whimsy. Written by the 19th-century mathematician who also gave us “Alice in Wonderland”, they are among the most entertaining logical works ever written, and contain some of the most thought-provoking puzzles ever devised.

Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll by Walter de la Mare.

Published 1932 by Faber & Faber, London. 8vo. First edition.

Orange clothbound hardback with gilt title on spine. Dustjacket in several pieces.

A short study of Lewis Carroll by the famous English poet.  My copy is pretty much completely knackered.

No idea at all where this came from. I really should get myself a better copy, but there’s just so many more new things to buy… sigh.

Alice’s Journey Beyond the Moon

Alice’s Journey Beyond the Moon by R.J. Carter. Illustrated by Lucy Wright.

Telos Publishing Ltd, 2004. First edition softback.

A new adventure for Alice: she travels through her telescope to the moon.

The author says:

Alice’s Journey Beyond The Moon is something I wrote both for children and Carroll scholars alike. Presented as something Carroll might have written during the time of Alice Pleasance Liddell’s engagement to Reginald Hargreaves, with historical footnotes (a la Martin Gardner’s excellent Annotated Alice) added to reflect events in Carroll’s life up to that point.

I love going through the 'suggested friends' bit on Facebook- especially when it links two people you know completely independently from each other in an 'x degrees of separation' sort of a way.
