Read full description of the books:The Hunting of the Snark tells the story of how the Bellman and his eccentric crew, who include a butcher, a baker, a beaver and a tailor, set off in quest of that most mysterious and elusive of creatures, the Snark.
In 1959 Tove Jansson, the author and illustrator of the Moomin Books, was commissioned to illustrate a Swedish language edition of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece. She proved an inspired choice, the enigmatic charms of her illustrative style bring the beauty and strangeness of Carroll's tale to life, as the minds of two of the greatest children's authors of the past 150 years met on the page.
Remarkably, amid the huge, worldwide success of her stories from Moominvalley, Jansson's unique edition of The Hunting of the Snark was forgotten, remaining unavailable for over fifty years. Now, for the first time, her beautiful illustrations are matched with the original English text in this facsimile edition, so that readers can enjoy this wonderful adventure afresh through the eyes of one of Europe's finest illustrators.
Read information about the authorThe Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.
He also has works published under his real name.
