This comprehensive new work not only provides bibliographical details lacking from previous studies, but it describes Dodgson's letters, articles, games, mathematical problems, and stories in such a way that the scholar without access to these rare items will gain an understanding of where Dodgson stood on various subjects and the nature of his relationship with the public via the press. Previously unknown Dodgson items are brought to light in this listing, and numerous early reprints are recorded for the first time. Dodgson's word puzzles "Doublets" and "Syzgies," which were published on a continuing basis in Vanity Fair and The Lady are fully described for the first time, and dozens of previously unknown Doublets and Syzygies are reprinted. Lovett's introductory essay discusses Dodgson's career as both a reader of periodicals and a contributor to them, and quotes extensively from one of the "lost" periodical contributions - Dodgson material which has not been reprinted. Its wealth of new material and full and proper description of what has so often been neglected in the past make LEWIS CARROLL & THE PRESS an invaluable reference for librarians, scholars, students, professors, collectors, and booksellers.
