The Afterlife of Alice and Her Adventures in Wonderland is a collection of various editions of both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There as well as similarly themed texts. Iconic elements of the Alice stories - images, phrases, and symbols - permeate American culture. This collection showcases many of the early texts that created and fostered the Alice mythos, with the captivating texts and lush illustrations of characters like the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit.
Like other classics from the Golden Age of Children's Literature, Alice and her friends in Wonderland continue to live on many years after publication. This collection also includes Alice-related materials that followed, such as other editions, texts that reference Alice, and materials from the University of Florida's Special Collections exhibit, “The Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland.”
This collection of Alice stories is valued as much for its popularity as its popular use in American culture and the creation of the American childhood.
