Alice in Wonderland Jigsaw Book

Alice in Wonderland Jigsaw Book: with seven 48-piece jigsaws- by Lewis Carroll.

With John Tenniel illustrations, coloured by Harry G. Theaker and Diz Wallis.

This edition published by Ted Smart, 2000, but first issued by Macmillan in 1999.

ISBN: 0333762916

From the publisher:

A gift book with some of the most famous illustrations in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass” presented as seven 48-piece jigsaw puzzles. Each puzzle is accompanied by an extract abridged from Lewis Carroll’s books as well as some of his nonsense poems and songs.
All the jigsaws are complete: they haven’t even been removed from their pages. In fact the book looks ‘as new’ although I bought it in the British Heart Foundation shop. For £2.50, as you can see in the scan :)

Alix in Academe

Alix in Academe by Jeanne Purdy.

Published by Creative Arts Book Company, 2000

Softback, no illustrations.

ISBN: 0887392458

A satire on US college life. Alix, looking for a college to attend, is touring a 6th campus in a rural setting. Dozing off in an assembly, she tumbles down a chute into a new wonderland: with bats in the belfry, marbles rolling about the floors and the Mad Hatter singing a song of lament as an assistant professor. During her journey, she gains confidence until she creates her own major…

Jeanne Purdy is a lecturer in Humanities and Women’s Studies in the States.

My copy is an old library book, so is a bit tatty.

Available on amazon: Alix in Academe Mine was bought through abebooks.

Alice’s Pop-up Wonderland

Alice’s Pop-up Wonderland.

Published by Ted Smart: Macmillan Childrens Books, 2000.

Illustrations by Tenniel and Alex Vining. Laminated pictorial covers.

There are six pop-up scenes and a heavily abridged text. The covers can be tied open with the attached ribbon to make a 360 degree scene, and a central pop-up also doubles as “the queen’s croquet game”.

ISBN: 0333901134

Mine is a very tatty copy, with some bits missing, but it was 79p in Oxfam, so I can’t complain.

The Annotated Alice

The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition introduction and notes by Martin Gardner.

Published by Allen Lane, The Penguin Press 2000. Hardback with dust-jacket.

The original book was first published in 1960. It has been reprinted several times and translated into Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Hebrew.

Reviews:

‘A landmark, bringing together a lifetime’s work on Lewis Carroll by writer and mathematician Martin Gardner. He dazzles on Carroll’s puzzles and games of logic and entertains on everything from Alice’s influence on the Beat poet Jack Kerouac to how mercury in hat linings turned hatters mad…it is unsurpassed’ – Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times

‘The indispensable guide to a classic of English literature…no one who has ever wondered about the meaning of ‘Jabberwocky’ should fail to include on their Christmas list’ – Robert McCrum, Observer

ISBN: 0713994177

I have this older version as well: it was Dad’s.
