When we self published LEWIS CARROLL IN HIS OWN ACCOUNT we thought we'd be lucky to break even. After all, a bank account, even Lewis Carroll's, isn't exactly the kind of thing you'd take off to your weekend retreat with a box of chocs and a glass of wine.

Or perhaps it is. Because now it has sold out, and people still want to buy it. Our aim was to get the book into the public domain, so we told libraries about it and kept the price low (by academic book standards), and didn't even try to sell it in bookstores. Nevertheless there's been a steady trickle of people ordering it ever since, only to be disappointed when we have to tell them there are no more copies - unless you count one being sold at the exorbitant price of $150 on Amazon.com; strangely, no takers for that :)

So we've decided to get a few more copies printed. Although it wasn't originally a Print on Demand, we can apparently transfer the files to POD, and still sell it for 35 per copy, the original price for the limited edition. It will have a black and white cover rather than the rather beautiful vanilla cream we had before, but all the information will be there. And I suppose there may be a few collectors who would like to have the white version to add to their existing copies.

If you would like to find out about the Tartassus, or learn about the lawyers dealing with Mary Dodgson's settlement, or discover how much CLD gave his brother Wilfred for a wedding present, now is your chance. Just don't blame me if you can't get the hang of pounds shillings and pence. Copies are 35, or whatever the US equivalent converts to (check it here), and if you want to buy, please visit Arthur on the Contact Form, drop me a line and let me know your name and address (please DON'T put a comment here). Payment will be by Paypal or UK sterling cheque, and we will be reprinting in July. The number of requests will give us a rough idea of how many to reprint, holding some back in reserve for future buyers.
