    Williams was a renowned Carroll scholar. Here he compiled some rare facsimile copies from one of Carroll's child friends, Mary Watson.

     

    Williams writes Watson's reculaction of a story Carroll told her and her sisters, along with a storyboard drawings by him. The story was based on the Brothers Grimm story Three Little Pigs.

     

    Also in my collection is a presentation copy of The Nursery "Alice", Inscribed to Mary Watson on March 25, 1890 by Lewis Carroll.
