Scope and Contents

The organization of these Lewis Carroll materials follows the headings and arrangement employed in Collections of Lewis Carroll, Edward Gorey, and V. S. Naipaul Placed on Deposit in the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, University of Texas at Austin by Mr. Byron W. Sewell and Mrs. Susan Rafferty Sewell, August 4, 1984.
Published editions of the Alice books and other works by Carroll and Carroll scholars have been withdrawn from this collection and separately cataloged. Folders containing material supplementary to those now-withdrawn books, as well as other near-print, nonprint, and ephemeral materials, remain in the present collection and in their original arrangement.
Those items which were described in the 1984 catalog of the Sewell collection are noted herein by entries in the form " The New Belfry of Christ Church, Carroll photo of belfry (P2)." In other words, Carroll's small monograph on the belfry (P2 in the original Sewell catalog) has been removed for separate cataloging, but the accompanying Carroll photograph of that architectural feature remains in section P and is housed in folder 5.9.
