Lewis Carroll Letter On Fame To Go Up For Sale

Posted at 8:05AM Wednesday 19 Feb 2014

A handwritten letter from Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll, in which he complains about the downside of fame, is to be sold at Bonham's.

Written under his own name, Charles Dodgson, he says he hates "being pointed out to, and stared at, by strangers, and treated as a 'lion'".
