Widely known as the author of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and other books for children, Lewis Carroll (Charles L. Dodgson) also excelled as a mathematician and inventor of puzzles. Towards the end of his life, Carroll worked on a book of mathematical puzzles and games but died before it was completed. This book is a new compilation of Carroll's surviving puzzles and games, assembled and edited by Edward Wakeling, a Lewis Carroll scholar and writer on mathematics. Included are a substantial number of problems that Carroll had intended for his collection. Among the problems are some baffling brainteasers. In addition to Carroll's original mathematical inventions and games, the editor has supplied a few original problems of his own. Some hints and solutions are also provided. Enhanced with some of John Tenniel's famous illustrations, this volume is a delightful double treat for any puzzle enthusiast or lover of the "Alice" books.
