Rosenbach purchased at auction the original manuscript to Alice s Adventures in Wonderland (known as Alice s Adventures under Ground ). This purchase stunned Britain & earned him the moniker The Man Who Bought Alice in America. The Rosenbach Museum & Library today preserves one of the world s finest Lewis Carroll collections: over 500 letters in Charles Dodgson s hand, nearly 3 dozen original drawings by Sir John Tenniel, rare & often inscribed copies of his books, photos, & much more. This catalogue reflects, if not in every detail, a major exhibition mounted at the Rosenbach curated by an expert in Victorian art & a student of Carroll in particular. Illustrations.
