Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Was NOT Published On July 4, 1865 As Some Maintain!

I get a daily e-mail from ‘Encyclopedia Britannica‘ about ‘On This Day‘.

I, however, no better than to take their word. I ALWAYS check events that are of interest to I.

So, I checked the Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ claim.

Glad I did!

The next image explains it all.

Click to ENLARGE. An e-mail I received today — July 4, 2017.



So that is the REAL story. They did PLAN to publish it on July 4, 1865 BUT it did NOT happen.

So, Encyclopedia Britannica, got it wrong — THOUGH you would think they would double check before they send out these e-mails.

This is why it cracks me up when people Bad Mouth Wikipedia. In reality, Wikipedia has less errors and is more up to date than any of the older Encyclopedias — and I say that as one who has, since an early age, loved Encyclopedias and still has a printed set of the Encyclopedia Britannica.
