In , Peter Zelchenko began a project for Volume-. One Publishing: to create an exact digital replica of Lewis. Carroll's first edition of Alice . Alice sees a white rabbit with a waist coat & pocket watch disappearing down a rabbit hole, what follows depicts the epitome of children's.
Gilbert and Alfred Cellier 's Topsyturveydom. Most of the book's adventures may have been based on and influenced by people, situations and buildings in Oxford and at Christ Church , e. A carving of a griffon and rabbit, as seen in Ripon Cathedral , where Carroll's father was a canon, may have provided inspiration for the tale. Since Carroll was a mathematician at Christ Church, it has been suggested   that there are many references and mathematical concepts in both this story and Through the Looking-Glass ; examples include:.
Literary scholar Melanie Bayley asserted in the magazine New Scientist that Dodgson wrote Alice in Wonderland in its final form as a scathing satire on new modern mathematics that were emerging in the midth century. It has been suggested by several people, including Martin Gardner and Selwyn Goodacre,  that Dodgson had an interest in the French language, choosing to make references and puns about it in the story.
It is most likely that these are references to French lessons—a common feature of a Victorian middle-class girl's upbringing.
For example, in the second chapter Alice posits that the mouse may be French. She therefore chooses to speak the first sentence of her French lesson-book to it: Pat's "Digging for apples" could be a cross-language pun , as pomme de terre literally; "apple of the earth" means potato and pomme means apple.
In the second chapter, Alice initially addresses the mouse as "O Mouse", based on her memory of the noun declensions "in her brother's Latin Grammar , 'A mouse — of a mouse — to a mouse — a mouse — O mouse! The sixth case, mure ablative is absent from Alice's recitation.
In the eighth chapter, three cards are painting the roses on a rose tree red, because they had accidentally planted a white-rose tree that The Queen of Hearts hates. Red roses symbolised the English House of Lancaster , while white roses were the symbol for their rival House of York.
While the book has remained in print and continually inspires new adaptations, the cultural material from which it draws has become largely specialized knowledge. Dr Leon Coward asserts the book 'suffers' from "readings which reflect today's fascination with postmodernism and psychology, rather than delving into an historically informed interpretation," and speculates that this has been partly driven by audiences encountering the narrative through a 'second-hand' source, explaining "our impressions of the original text are based on a multiplicity of reinterpretations.
We don't necessarily realise we're missing anything in understanding the original product, because we're usually never dealing with the original product.
Carina Garland notes how the world is "expressed via representations of food and appetite", naming Alice's frequent desire for consumption of both food and words , her 'Curious Appetites'. After the riddle "Why is a raven like a writing-desk? Nina Auerbach discusses how the novel revolves around eating and drinking which "motivates much of her [Alice's] behaviour", for the story is essentially about things "entering and leaving her mouth".
The manuscript was illustrated by Dodgson himself who added 37 illustrations—printed in a facsimile edition in The first print run was destroyed or sold to America  at Carroll's request because he was dissatisfied with the quality. The book was reprinted and published in John Tenniel 's illustrations of Alice do not portray the real Alice Liddell , who had dark hair and a short fringe.
Alice has provided a challenge for other illustrators, including those of by Charles Pears and the full series of colour plates and line-drawings by Harry Rountree published in the inter-War Children's Press Glasgow edition. Other significant illustrators include: Generally it received poor reviews, with reviewers giving more credit to Tenniel's illustrations than to Carroll's story.
At the release of Through the Looking-Glass , the first Alice tale gained in popularity and by the end of the 19th century Sir Walter Besant wrote that Alice in Wonderland "was a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete". The first print run of 2, was held back because Tenniel objected to the print quality.
The text blocks of the original edition were removed from the binding and sold with Dodgson's permission to the New York publishing house of D. The binding for the Appleton Alice was virtually identical to the Macmillan Alice , except for the publisher's name at the foot of the spine.

Arthur Rackham, Sir John Tenniel - Nursery Version. The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well. Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.
First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything; then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves; here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs.
She did not like to drop the jar for fear of killing somebody, so managed to put it into one of the cupboards as she fell past it. How brave they'll all think me at home!
