July 4, tomorrow, is said to be the 150th anniversary of the publication by Macmillan of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The date of publication was itself the third-year anniversary of Dodgson’s famous boat trip on the Isis at Oxford with the three daughters of Dean Liddell of Christchurch, including, of course, young Alice.
