Alice in Acidland

Alice in Acidland: Lewis Carroll Revisited by Carroll and Thomas Fensch.

Tenniel illustrations.

Published by A.S. Barnes and Co/ T.Yoseloff, 1970. Hardback first edition.

SBN: 498074773

Tatty copy, with the dustjacket in pieces: I could do with a nicer version…

The book has been described elsewhere:

…Charles Dodgson may have passed Thomas DeQuincey on the streets of London — after all — this was generally the same era that DeQuincey wrote Confessions of an English Opium Eater. Originally published in 1970, Alice in Acidland suggests that Alice’s experiences – -and the curiouser and curiouser animals that she encounters — echo the LSD trips of the hippie 1960s – -and could easily have been visualized by Thomas DeQuincey and the mad hatters of Lewis Carroll’s time.

It’s basically the original book with drug-themed annotations: quite fun.

Available on amazon in the 1970 original: Alice in Acidland, or as a modern reprint: Alice in Acidland
