Description: LEWIS CARROLL INSCRIBES BOOK TO HIS NEPHEW DODGSON, CHARLES LUTWIDGE. The Game of Logic. Inscribed to his nephew, on the half-title: "Bertram J. Collingwood / with the Author's love / Mar. / 87," in purple ink, unsigned. 8vo, publisher's red cloth, cracks and repairs to spine, bumped corners; hinges cracked, minor soiling to edges of signature page. With the accompanying envelope containing board and game counters; lacking 3 counters. Later edition. Np, March 1887

Notes: Dodgson wrote in 1883 of his apprehension to release his portrait or autograph to any but his closest associates: "My constant aim is to remain, personally, unknown to the world; consequently I have always refused applications for photographs or autographs, as my features and handwriting belong to me as a private individual--and I often beg even my own private friends, who possess one or the other, not to put them into albums where strangers can see them," Letters of Lewis Carroll, ed. Morton N. Cohen, 1979, p. 446, n. 1.
