Commemorating the 150th anniversary of one of the most beloved classics of childrens literature, this illustrated edition presents Alice like you’ve never seen her before.

In 1865, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an Oxford mathematician and Anglican deacon, published a story about a little girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole. Thus was the world first introduced to Alice and her pseudonymous creator, Lewis Carroll. This beautiful new edition of Alices Adventures in Wonderland features rarely seen illustrations by Salvador Dalí that illuminate the surreal yet curiously logical and mathematical realm into which Alice famously falls.

In an informative and wide-ranging introduction, Carroll expert Mark Burstein discusses Dalís connections with Carroll, his treatment of the symbolic figure of Alice, and the mathematical nature of Wonderland. In addition, mathematician Thomas Banchoff reflects on the friendship he shared with Dalí and explores the mathematical undercurrents in Dalís work.

“Until now, the astounding illustrations drawn by Salvador Dalí for a deluxe limited edition and expensive version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland were out of reach to most book lovers. This book fulfills the dreams of many who want to have their own copies of these beautiful works, with the addition of an erudite introduction to Carroll and Dalí by Mark Burstein and Thomas Banchoff.” - Edward Wakeling, author of Lewis Carroll: The Man and His Circle

“To those of us brought up on John Tenniel’s iconic illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, it seems unbelievable that anyone else would dare to attempt the task. Yet hundreds have done so, though none is as distinguished and few as imaginative as Salvador Dalí. This attractive 150th anniversary edition, which describes Dalí’s mathematical interests and presents his illustrations (previously published only in a rare limited edition), is greatly to be welcomed."--Robin Wilson, author of Lewis Carroll in Numberland
