First Sentence
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the hook her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,' tho Read the first page

This is a really nice edition. I wanted all the stories in one place, with the original drawings etc. Its far too big to read in bed, but is great to spread out on a coffee table to read. Really nice finish to the cover etc. Would highly recommend.

Good but not complete 6 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
On the plus side, this book contains loads of stuff by Lewis Carroll as well as the two Alice books. Not much is of the same quality, but quite a lot is well worth having. However, be aware that the title is misleading. Quite a lot that Lewis Carroll wrote is not here, as can be seen by doing a search for books by "Carroll, Lewis" and comparing that with the contents. It includes some material that appeared under his real name or pseudonyms other than Lewis Carroll, but few will grumble at that. Although all the wonderful illustrations by Tenniel for the Alice books are here (albeit not always clearly reproduced), no other illustrations are included. For some works, such as The Hunting of the Snark, the illustrations commissioned by Carroll are excellent and their omission is a serious drawback. However, for all lovers of the Alice books who want to read more by the author, this is a fair and inexpensive starting point.

what it contains 16 Jan. 2009
By David A. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
This has the two Alice books in it, Tha weird poem abotu the vorpal sword (can't recall the name right now), two other books in it, and a wide variety of poems and essays by Carroll. The book is illustrated, though all of the illustrations are black and white. I got it new for less than 20 bucks, which is a good price. Something to consider when you look at how much they are selling it for here.

Fantastic B & N Creation! 14 July 2009
By H. Barbosa - Published on Amazon.com
Barnes and Noble published the 1st edition in 1994 in hardcover with a dust jacket. They now offer this deluxe faux leather edition and I am impressed with the results! Find it at all B & N stores and their online site. You will find it at most $19.98 or less if you happen to be a member! I got mine for 13.75 using one of their coupons. Buy from one of the vendors on this site if there is no other alternative for you. The book includes John Tenniel's iconic B & W drawings. This collection will bring countless hours of reading pleasure.

Do you really need 'complete' 6 Nov. 2005
By B. Marold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
'The Complete, Fully Illustrated Works, Deluxe Edition' of lewis Carroll's works may actually be more than you really want. While three of Carroll's works, the two Alice fantasy novels and the long poem, 'The Hunting of the Snark' are major classics of English literature, Carroll wrote an equal or greater amount of pretty dull stuff, primarily the two 'Sylvia and Bruno' novels, which I have never been able to finish.

My suggestion to all but the Carroll scholar and people who want to see his logical works is to buy the annotated versions of the two Alice novels and the annotated 'Snark', all annotated by Martin Gardiner. This way, you are also guaranteed of getting Henry Holiday's illustrations for 'The Hunting of the Snark', which are not in all 'Complete' collections.
