From the infamous Photo Play Picturized by artist, DEWITT C. Well, allow me to indulge you a bit further.... This is just not "ANY". This incorporates both stories in PHOTO PLAY fashion!
Let's start from the beginning history..... In 1865, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, published. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It tells of a curious seven-year-old girl named. Who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (Wonderland) populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.
The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children. The popularity of the book still lasts today and the story has been expanded/remade in countless movie adaptions over the years. Carroll released a sequel to. And What Alice Found There. The themes and settings of.
Make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May, uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on 4 November, uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.Publication from the 1915 silent film adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, directed and written by W. Young and starring Viola Savoy as Alice. Alice goes with her sister to a picnic and then she falls asleep and starts dreaming about a wonder land full of talking animals and walking playing cards. This exceptional theatrical version of Lewis Carroll's 1865 classic features a combination of live characters and puppets. Illustrates why the silent genre remains both elusive and very effective.
Without having to worry about what these characters sound like (or providing realistic mouth movements), director W. Young and his F/X team mimic the Victorian vitriol of. (the artist who illustrated Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass) and come up with a weird, winning combination. The movie magic employed here is just amazing, and though definitely ancient in technique and modern equivalent, it really works here.
This is especially true when Alice first falls down the rabbit hole as well as when she comes across the Dodo, the Walrus, and the rest of the animal convention. (born July 23, 1899) portrayed Alice in the 1915 silent film adaption of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Savoy spent most of her childhood as a stage actress, reports of the time indicating that she was involved in around one hundred and twenty-five stage productions, from Broadway to touring stock companies, and acted alongside some of the finest acting talents of the day.
She claimed to have been named after the character of Viola in Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", a part she hoped to play someday herself. By 1912 she was best known for her portrayal of Virgie in the play The Littlest Rebel. Despite her prolific stage appearances, she only made two films, both around 1915. Her acting career appears to end there, despite an astonishingly long lifespan. And firmly bound with no stray intext markings.
There are a few minor margin tears, half an inch or less, and a couple of archival acid-free tape repairs but there are no overly destructive tears. The photographs offer nice black and white stills. Very brilliantly done while accompanying the story line! The most notable imperfection is the colored frontispiece is missing and there is a red stain on one of the photographs.There are 297 pages in this 6 3/4" X 9 1/4" volume. This is a RARE edition of this book. It won't last long so.. The original manuscript for this classic bedtime story was written right in the middle of the Civil War, in 1862. This is what ordinary Americans were reading as entertainment at the time. It provided temporary escape and relief from the ravages of the War. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, was a mathematician and a logician who lectured at Oxford for some 26 years.
He was also an accomplished photographer and a Church Deacon. Dodgson's pen name was Lewis Carroll. Dodgson first told the story during a 2½ hour rowing trip with friends on July 4th, 1862. He created the story on the spur of the moment to entertain the three young daughters of the Dean of Christ Church at Oxford, (Alice, Lorina, and Edith Liddell).10 year old Alice later pleaded with Carroll to commit the story to paper. He completed it the following February.
This first manuscript, called "Alice's Adventures Underground" is thought to have probably been destroyed in 1864 when, on November 26th 1864, Dodgson presented Alice Liddell with a more elaborate hand-printed second version which included 37 of his own illustrations as a Christmas present. Reverend Dodgson later showed the tale to his friend George Macdonald, who urged him to publish it.
He then revised and expanded the tale to almost twice its length. This third version was published by Macmillan and Co. In London, on July 4th, 1865.Sir John Tenniel was the artist who agreed to illustrate the revised and expanded text which was now called Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Tenniel's black and white illustrations were made for the reproductive process known as wood-engraving. Please see our other books too!
