The Complete Illustrated Lewis Carroll Paperback
Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel
Part of the Special Editions series
Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is famed for his magical stories, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, here illustrated throughout the inner pages by Sir John Tenniel's much loved drawings.
However, inspired by the insatiable Victorian appetite for party games, tricks and conundrums, this eccentric and polymathical Englishman also wrote many other works of a humorous, witty, whimsical and nonsensical nature such as the mock-heroic nonsense verse 'The Hunting of the Snark', as well as dozens of other verses, stories, acrostics and puzzles, all of which are included in this volume.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.

Review by ysar
Ok, so I haven't had time to read the entire book yet, but I read all the Alice stories (unabridged) when I was a teen, and this book is quite the treasure. In addition to the Alice stories you would expect, this edition includes funny little word puzzles and such that I found wonderful. If you have only read Alice, you have missed half the man's genius!
