Description
1886 1ed Lewis Carroll A Tangled Tale Mathematics Arithmetic Illustrated Humor

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ― Lewis Carroll

While mostly known for his ‘Alice’s Adventures,’ Lewis Carroll published other humor stories that are desirable works. ‘A Tangled Tale’ is a collection of ten short stories written with the designs of mathematical problems. Carroll himself writes of these stories – “the intention was to embody each Knot [story] one or more mathematical questions – in Arithmetic, Algebra, or Geometry, as the case might be- for the amusement, and possible edification, of the fair readers.”

This 1886 edition is a first edition, third thousand print run, stated on title page, and includes six charming illustrations by Arthur Frost.
