You can also visit your local library and borrow some, or check to see if they offer downloadable books as well.

The American Bookbinders Museum

The American Bookbinders Museum began as the private collection of equipment and publications held by Taurus Bookbinding of San Francisco. In 2006, the collection outgrew the modest bindery and so the museum was created and was moved to a new location that allows the public to view the collection. Admission to the museum is free, however an appointment is needed. Please email or phone the museum to make a reservation to see the collection.

Lewis Carroll Page

Joel Birenbaum runs this site that is hosted by the Lewis Carroll Society of North America.  They state:

Welcome to the Lewis Carroll home page, which is hosted by the Lewis Carroll Society of North America. We hope to provide useful information for the Carroll enthusiast as well as the novice and all those in between. Cyberspace seems a suitable home for information regarding a man who didn’t want his true identity linked to his best work. I was told to mention that he wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

What follows is a guide to Lewis Carroll resources and documents on-line and in print.
