A wonderland of Lewis Carroll souvenirs

A TIP FROM... JOHN DORSEY

June 14, 1998|By JOHN DORSEY

A new show at New York's Morgan Library is a tribute to Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), the Oxford mathematician and writer who penned "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" under the name of Lewis Carroll. "a.k.a. Lewis Carroll" includes early editions of his books, commercial spinoffs from plastic Cheshire cats to Mad Hatter playing cards, even a ring that belonged to Alice Liddell, for whom he wrote the classic.

The Morgan Library, at 29 E. 36th St., is open 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Requested contribution: $6 adults, $4 seniors and students. The show runs through Aug. 30. For information, call 212-685-0008.
