The Special Collections Library is pleased to announce a new online exhibit: "Curiouser and Curiouser!": Exploring Wonderland with Alice. This exhibit features a selection of materials from the physical exhibit celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which was on display in the 7th floor Exhibit Space of Hatcher Graduate Library, August 25, 2015 - December 17, 2015.
Now long-established as a classic, translated into more than 170 languages, and continually re-interpreted for new generations of readers, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has become a touchstone of childhood in the modern imagination. We invite you to enjoy the curious creatures and landscapes of Wonderland through a selection of Alice editions and other related materials. Of particular note is the November 1865 1st English edition, an exploration of how depictions of "The Mouse's Tail" have changed over time, an interpretive translation set in Aboriginal Australia, and selected 20th & 21st century illustrated editions ofAlice. Also, for those interested in introducing Alice to K-12 students, be sure to take a look at the Curricular Materials section of the exhibit.
Items in this exhibit are drawn principally from the Special Collections Library Children's Literature Collection. Volumes are also displayed from the Special Collection Library General & Rare Collection, the Hatcher Library Children's Literature Collection, and the Hatcher Graduate Library.
