Format: Hardcover
This is a superb book with all the original illustrations. It may be sold as achildren's book but only adults can appreciate all the nuances of Alice etc.
So many of the well known sayings (and misquotes) of today come from these pages, that if you haven't read it before you'll find yourself thinking - so that's where it comes from.
So many of us know the 11th verse of the Walrus and the Carpenter that there was even a programme (by the BBC I think) using the 4th line - Of Cabbages & Kings.
Who can forget Tweedledum & Tweedledee or Humpty Dumpty from 'Looking Glass'.
The intermittent verses of 'He Thought He Saw' from 'Sylvie and Bruno'are often quoted; usually just one rather than the set. I cannot understand why the latter book is less well known. It's full of fairies, mad professors and a sprinkling of animals making it just as enchanting.
The final section of the book is pure poetry - literally. It has illustrations of fairies, though the subject matter of the poems is anything but. Some are far too long to appeal to children and I feel this is a section only an adult would wish to read. It is interspersed with shorter poems which are charming but deal with such subjests as lost love and a lesson in Latin. Even 'Puck Lost and Found' is more the reflection of an adult.
That being said I feel life would be poorer if I did not own this volume and would recommend it to anyone. Pure escapism is so necessary to wind down from today's rat-race and this book certainly provides it.

Check the contents. Do you really need a COMPLETE set! 6 Nov. 2005
By B. Marold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
'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.
I love it! Its perfect! 23 Sept. 2014

This is a great volume. IT has all of Lewis Carroll's stories in it. It would be great for a fan of Lewis Carroll, a literature student studying Carroll, or a lovely edition for a child's bedroom. It has a beautiful hardcover as well as illustrations inside the book. I love it and I'm really glad I bought it.
