Lewis Carroll, the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, was an English writer who doubled as a mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. Carroll was known for humorous, sometimes satirical, works, with fantasy oriented themes. At a young age, Carroll wrote for various family magazines including The Comic Times. Although his works are now famous, he felt otherwise saying: andquot;I do not think I have yet written anything worthy of real publication (in which I do not include the Whitby Gazette or the Oxonian Advertiser), but I do not despair of doing so some day,andquot;
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland sold for $21,250 in 2009 by Christie's Auction site. The 2,000 first edition copies that were recalled by Carroll and were never put up for sale. The sequel to Alice's Adventures, Through the Looking-Glass, has also had various auction accomplishments lately with sales from approximately $4,000 to $8,000.
Carroll also wrote a collection of poems The Hunting of the Snark and Jabberwocky, which further exemplify his use of dramatic word play, logic, and fantasy.
