Earlier this week I was privileged to be interviewed about my doctoral research for a new video for the Oxford Grad Study Campaign. For this I was thrilled to return to Christ Church Library (thanks so much to Steven & Cristina for arranging everything on the day!), to introduce some items from their Lewis Carroll Collection, which included early sketches by Carroll for the characters in Alice in Wonderland, proof pages, as well as the presentation first edition copy of Alice to the college library, some of Carroll’s original photographs and letters (click through the Instagram gallery to see a few of those items) – what a memorable day!
