Visit to the Lewis Carroll collection of Alan & Alison Tannenbaum
Join us for a reprise of (or sequel to) the popular 2012 Ticknor visit to the Tannenbaum collection in Chelmsford, MA. Much has happened since then.
Alice in Wonderland touches all domains of collecting, and Alan considers himself a Carrollian “completist” with one of the best Carroll collections in the country. So there should be something interesting for everyone among his 10,000 items. Lewis Carroll wrote so much more than just the Alice books, though, and there will be examples of just about everything he wrote, starting in the mid 1800s. From first editions, to books that Carroll (and the real Alice) owned, to photographs, letters, and original artwork and publishing artifacts to lots of popular culture.
Alan has a technology background and is now retired from IBM after 33 years. He is past president of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, and a member of the Grolier Society and the Ticknor Society. In his 40 year involvement with Lewis Carroll he has written and lectured on Carrollian subjects. He remains on the LCSNA Board of Directors and manages their YouTube channel. Alison Tannenbaum in her own right has written creative pieces related to Carroll and has published several parodies as well as a Carrollian cookbook. They are both active in the LCSNA.
