Alice’s Adventures in Atomland in the Plastic Age: A Stark Fantasy by Daddy Dumps, alias Humpty Dumpty, alias Deadeye Dick. In Memory of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, alias Lewis Carroll and Harry Morgan Ayres, Gentle-men, Scholars, and Lovers of Little Girls, by Richard M. Field.
Published by Faulkner & Field, 1949.
Author’s signed limited edition, first printing, no. 663.
Political, literary & social satire on modern life, science & the atomic bomb. Includes a Jabberwock parody- something I always enjoy:
‘Twas Jersey, and the railroad tracks
Did click and shimmer in the heat;
All smoky were the factory stacks,
And belching f-o-u-l reek.
Characters include Humpty Dumpty, Dr. Dodo, the tea party trio, and the red and white Queens.
