32 pp. A rub to the rear wrap, and a price sticker. Many unusual photographs and illustrations. ''Mavis Batey tells the story of Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and the immortal friendship with 'Lewis Carroll', the mathematics don, which inpired the Alice books. Mts Batey, who is married to the Treasurer of Christ Church, has made a special study of the Oxford background to the famous Alice stories, which throws a new and refreshing light on Lewis Carroll as child-lover and gifted story-teller.''
