CARROLL,LEWIS. PHANTASMAGORIA AND OTHER POEMS. London: Macmillan 1869. 8vo (5 x 7"), 202p., blue cloth with gilt decorations, all edges gilt. Two signatures sprung, light fraying to spine ends, spine and covers darkened a bit, VG condition in a custom cloth clamshell box. THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED ON THE HALF-TITLE BY DODGSON TO HIS SISTER, MARY DODGSON! It reads: "Mary C. Dodgson with the author's love, Jan. 1869." According to his diary, he sent out 28 copies on January 7, 1869 to his friends and family so presumably this is one of those copies. Judging from his letters, he and his sister Mary were very close. She got married a few months after Phantasmagoria was published and it was her son Stuart who wrote the first biography of Carroll published in 1898. This is a special association copy.
