The original title of the book: The Photographs of Lewis Carroll: A Catalogue Raisonné

Renowned for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) was also one of the most important amateur photographers of the Victorian era and the period's finest photographer of children. From 1856 to 1880, Carroll took around three thousand pictures, the majority of which were portraits of family, friends, and colleagues. He also sought out and photographed celebrities of the day, including Alfred Tennyson, Samuel Wilberforce, Michael Faraday, William Holman Hunt, Henry Taylor, George MacDonald, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina Rossetti, Ellen Terry, John Everett Millais, Charlotte Yonge, and Prince Leopold. Carroll's remaining output includes images of landscapes and architecture, works of art, and skeletons; assisted self-portraits; and other miscellaneous pictures. Today, his photographs are highly prized and fetch enormous prices at auction.

This catalogue raisonné presents images of the nearly one thousand surviving photographs of Lewis Carroll―including many from private collections that have never been published―and provides information on their subjects/sitters, their locations, and the dates when they were taken, as well as extracts from Carroll's private diaries that mention his relevant photographic activity and background information concerning known prints. Edward Wakeling, an internationally recognized Carrollian scholar, has also reconstructed Carroll's lost register of his complete photographic opus. In addition to the catalogue, Wakeling discusses Carroll's activity as a photographer, his contacts with other Victorian art photographers, and his nude studies, and he provides a full listing of the contents of Carroll's various photographic albums. This is the most comprehensive study of Carroll's photography ever produced, and it will be a standard work for anyone studying Victorian photography and for Lewis Carroll's photographs in particular.

"Edward Wakeling is widely acknowledged as a world authority on Lewis Carroll, with his dedication to reconstituting the chronology of Dodgson’s photographic practice over the past fifteen years setting him apart from all other specialists. His catalogue raisonné is a welcome addition as it makes a significant contribution to the field and will become the standard reference work that will underpin future research and scholarship." (Roger Taylor, Emeritus Professor of Photographic History, De Montfort University, Leicester)

    Set to be the definitive book on the subject and a necessary purchase for the collector or enthusiast in early photographic history. The first time such a complete catalogue has been produced. Obviously with any work like this, new photographs will appear but this is set to be the standard reference work for dealers, auctioneers and collectors of this pioneer in portrait photography. Photos are produced as fully as possible and accompanied by exhaustive research and interesting accompanying essays.
