In 1869 Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) began to write Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. This was published, with illustrations by John Tenniel, at Christmas 1871. To my utter delight, my sweet daughter gifted me with a beautiful vintage edition of the book this year for Christmas.
The inner page holds a beautiful little Christmas poem, written by Lewis Carroll in 1867. Thought I'd share it with you for this first day of Christmas!
