Rediscovered Lewis Carroll Puzzles
Best known as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll was also a noted mathematician and puzzlist. Toward the end of his life, he was working on a collection of puzzles, but died before it was completed. Edward Wakeling, a Lewis Carroll scholar and mathematician, drew on that collection to prepare this volume of 42 delightfully diverting mind-benders: A Geometrical Paradox; Castle Croquet; A Sticky but Polished Riddle; Predicting the Total; Pounds, Shillings and Pence; Cats and Rats; Eligible Apartments; A Good Prospect; The Monkey and Weight Problem; Feeding the Cat; A New Way to Pay Old Debts; Crossing the River; Who's Coming to Dinner?; Going to the Theatre; Two Tumblers; Spheres and Dodecahedrons; and 26 more. Enhanced with illustrations by John Tenniel (the original illustrator of Alice) and others, this volume will delight Lewis Carroll fans and puzzlists alike. Solutions are included.
