The original manuscript of ‘Alice’s Adventures Underground’ given to the real Alice – Alice Liddell – by Lewis Carroll as a Christmas present in 1864, is the basis for a new website at http://www.aliceinoxford.net/play.htm. ‘Journeys to Wonderland’ takes children on a multimedia journey, shedding light on Alice’s adventures and telling the stories of Lewis Carrol and the real and fictitious Alices along the way. The website is a partnership between the British Library, Museum of Oxford and South East Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (SEMLAC).
From the BL’s Press Release showing a nice colour reproduction of the first page of Carroll’s manuscript.
The Alice in Oxford site’s main feature is a profusely-illustrated presentation of the story and all the people and places connected with its creation, with activities such as “Make your own Pool of Tears” or “Make a fun ‘Off with your head game'”, but it also includes short biographies of Carroll and Alice Liddell as well as information on Oxford.
