Anne Coulter Martens

Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland adapted by Anne Coulter Martens.

Published 1965 by The Dramatic Publishing Company.

Softback.

Play for schools based on Alice.

Publisher’s blurb:

Cast: 35 m. and w., doubling possible. As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home. She tries to get help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit, and from the very nice Cheshire Cat. Long enough to contain the most delightful incidents, it is short enough to keep audience attention.

On Amazon: Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland; a play in two acts

You can see one school’s version on Youtube.

Pandect of C.L.D.

Pandect of C.L.D., allegedly written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) with a foreword and postscript by Morris L. Ernst.

Privately printed at the Peter Pauper Press, 1965.

Hardback, with dustjacket.

Dedication reads:

Holiday Greetings for your own Adventures in the Wonderland of 1966: Morris L. Ernst

According to wiki:

Ernst was a strong supporter of J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. In 1940, as head of the ACLU, he agreed to bar communists from employment there and even discouraged their membership, basing his position on a distinction between the rights of the individual and the rights of groups.

Apparently, the “kindly hoax” took in at least two distinguished editors of the day.

Occasionally available on amazon: Pandect of C.L.D
