‘DODGSON’S EARLIEST LITERARY EFFORTS’ CARROLL, Lewis [i.e. Charles Lutwidge DODGSON].
Useful and Instructive Poetry. With an Introduction by Derek Hudson.
First edition. Useful and Instructive Poetry was Lewis Carroll’s first book, composed in 1845 (when its author was thirteen) and written out for his siblings Wilfred Longley Dodgson and Louisa Fletcher Dodgson. It was the first in a series of family magazines and was inspired in part by W.M. Praed’s Etonian (Windsor and London, 1820-1821), although Carroll’s identity as writer already manifests itself in the poems and watercolours and pencil sketches which illustrate the manuscript, some of which are reproduced here.
A Compendium of the veterinary Art, containing an accurate Description of all the Diseases to which the Horse is liable, their Symptoms and Treatment, the Anatomy and Physiology of the Foot, illustrated by Plates, with Observations on Shoeing and on Stable Management … the sixth Edition, corrected.
Sixth edition. Evidently a successful text, further editions appeared soon after the work’s first publication and would eventually be expanded into four volumes (the present edition is often found accompanied by The materia medica and pharmacopoeia).
