Illustration from Lewis Carroll's original manuscript of Alice's Adventures under Ground (1862-1864)

This image is from Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript of Alice’s Adventures under Ground [later published as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland], 1862-1864.

Alice grows in size after drinking from a mysterious bottle with the instruction ‘drink me’ on it.

John Tenniel produced the most famous illustrations of Alice, but looking at Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript, there’s no doubt that Tenniel drew heavily on the author’s vision.
