"As all readers of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' will know, when Alice sat down (uninvited) at the Mad Tea-party, the Hatter oepend his eyes very wide and asked, 'Why is a raven like a writing-desk?' The riddle is famous because when Alice in turn asked 'What's the answer?' the Hatter replied that he hadn't the faintest idea. It has provoked ingenius possible answers from many Great Minds, but in this utterly engaging 'Enquiry,' Francis Huxley has undertaken the first investigation *in depth*." A charming and interesting look at the old puzzler presented by Lewis Carroll. Brown cloth, 191 pages (including Index), illustrated. Some lean, lightly dusted edges, light corner wear. Rubbed dust jacket w/impressions, slightly sunned spine, light edgewear/crinkling, light chipping/wear to top corner of front fold, stain to reverse of bottom edge (not visible on front).
