Getting snarky with Carroll

How magical is this text and drawing from Alice in Wonderland in Lewis Carroll's own hand! It's from the British Museum's collection of original manuscripts.
If you also love the Reverend Dodgson, you'll want to obtain The Annotated Hunting of the Snark: The Definitive Edition. It's one of our top 10 sellers in books, so don't delay! Boris Karloff reads Part 1, below.

  2. I first heard of The Hunting of the Snark on a BBC Masterpiece Mystery! episode, Inspector Lewis: The Soul of Genius, first aired July 8, 2012. This story involved obsessive Snark scholars who believed Carroll had a hidden puzzle, riddle, or coded message in the Snark writings. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/lewis/soulofgenius.html
