I was just looking around for e-book services when I couldn't help but notice that the British Library is offering Lewis Caroll's handwritten and illustrated Alice's Adventures Under Ground for free on the iPad right now. It's not going to be free forever, though.

Unfortunately, I don't have an iPad, but if you do, I think you should know that the British Library is offering digital versions of the manuscripts they store with Shakespeare's First Folio becoming available sometime later on.

Hm, interesting! Though of course all of Lewis Carroll's works are available online anyway, seeing the original handwritten version would be enlightening. The copyright's expired, though, so there's nothing to stop someone taking this free version and redistributing it even after they've started charging for it...

I do prefer Bruno and Sylive to Alice.
