Early version of Alice in Wonderland
A year or three ago, I mentioned having an early version of Alice in Wonderland, and someone, I have no remembrance of who, asked me about the title. Unfortunately, there didn't seem to be any way to search on "small Dover book with light purple cover". There were ways I could have found it online (like searching on something like [Dodson bibliography]), but instead, victory was achieved when I went through a stack of books to see what I wanted to get rid of.

The book is Alice's Adventures Underground, and available in facsimile from both Project Gutenberg and Amazon.

As I recall, it doesn't have the nastier bits, like the Duchess.

Perhaps someday Amazon will include searches on descriptions of book covers-- I believe this could be automated. Or maybe it's Google's job.

Anyway, I hope this post gets to the person who was curious about the book.

Actually there is some sort of website where people describe book covers and other fragmentary hints, and other people do recognize the book! I'll watch out for it.

TinEye will attempt to find a match for any picture, either from the URL of the picture on another website, or from a picture you upload from your own computer. The chances are good that one of the sites where a match is found will include some information about the picture.
