Your rating: None

The Wonderland books with their talking griffins, unicorns, lions and other furry creatures are some of the more readily recognized works in the anthropomorphic fantasy genre, taking a place among other classics of its type such as Wind in the Willows, Watership Down and others.

A rare collection of photographs, books, papers and other personal items that belonged to the real Alice In Wonderland, Alice Pleasance Liddell Hargreaves (1852-1934), is to be auctioned by Sotheby's in London on June 6.

A description of the items to be auctioned that includes a copy of Alice's Adventure's Under Ground that the author personally inscribed to Alice can be found here along with a general history of the relationship between Liddell and Lewis Carroll.
