        ORIGINAL ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH, from wet collodion negative of Ella Monier-Williams at the age of 8, in a nightdress posed as if sleeping, ONE OF THREE KNOWN COPIES, inscribed on the verso in pencil "Ella Monier-Williams, Oxford, "Dreaming of Alice"

      228 x 140mm. Probably taken May-July 1866, Presented in wide margined acid-free mount. AN E MAIL IMAGE OF THIS PHOTOGRAPH CAN BE SENT TO YOU ON REQUEST. Carroll recorded in his diary on May 1st 1866 his first meeting with the Monier-Williams family and his wish to photograph Ella 'whom I had noticed before'. Mrs Monier-Williams brought her daughter to Carroll's rooms to be photographed on the 24th of that month. The diary records no less than twelve mentions of Ella and a number of photographic sessions; "Mrs Williams brought over the little Ella, of whom I took two excellent negatives" [24 May 1866]; "I have taken.. a good many of their little Ella, of whom I did several pictures with no other dress than a cloth tied round her, savage fashion.." [8 July 1866]. During that first week of July 1866 he also photographed her dressed with ethnographic items from New Zealand he borrowed from the Ashmolean Museum. Ella was one of the charmed circle of favourites to whom Carroll presented an inscribed copy of Alice. Numerous other of his books that were sent to her, along with letters from Carroll, appeared at auction at Phillips, London, in November 1994. Such a stream of presentation copies shows how lasting their friendship was. Ella later reminisced about Carroll: " As a child he gave one the sense of such perfect understanding, and this knowledge of child nature was the same whether the child was only seven years of age, or in her teens. A 'grown-up' child was his horror A visit to Mr Dodgson's rooms to be photographed was always full of surprises. Although he had quaint fancies in the way he dressed his little sitters, he could never bear a dressed-up child. A 'natural child' with ruffled untidy hair suited him far better, and he would place her in some ordinary position of daily life, such as sleeping, or reading, and so produce charming pictures... The last time I saw Mr Dodgson, not long before his death, was at the Indian Institute at Oxford, when, full of characteristic teasing, as usual, he tried to prove to me, the mother of six sons, how infinitely superior he considered girls to boys; and that was indeed a settled conviction he was always ready to defend. I little thought that it would be the last time I should meet the man of so gentle and kindly a nature, whose friendship enriched my childhood.." (Letters, ed. Cohen, p195-6). * LITERATURE: For Carroll's photographs of Ella see, Wakeling: Register of all Known [Lewis Carroll] Photographs, in: Taylor (Roger) and Wakeling (Edward), Lewis Carroll Photographer, The Princeton University Library Albums, image bracket: 1461-1483.The Illustrated London News for 14 April 1928 printed this photograph along with others as part of an article it published on the sale of the Alice manuscript: "Photographs by the Author of Alice, one of Lewis Carroll's 'Little Girls'... Since the announcement of the sale of the original MS of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, " by Lewis Carroll, which fell to an American bidder for £15,400, several ladies who, as little girls, were freinds of the author, have recalled memories of him. These photographs, taken by him in his rooms at Christ Church, Oxford, all show Ella Monier-Williams (now Mrs Bickersteth of Canterbury), daughter of the late Sir M. Monier-Williams, Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford. In a recent letter to 'The Times' Mrs Bickersteth said: "It was over sixty years ago that he used to visit my father. Among my earliest recollections is being taken by my mother to his rooms in Tom Quad at Christ Church, again and again, to be photographed by him in some mood, costume, or attitude which caught his fancy, or in which his discerning eye saw the unconscious expression of childish pleasure, hope or awe. Of these photographs I have a bundle precious to me..." * PROVENANCE: This photograph was one of six that together formed item 536 in the Lewis Carroll Centenary in London Exhibition, which took place in London in 1932 where it is described by Falconer Madan, the editor, in the catalogue as: "Six photographs by Dodgson by Miss Ella C. F. Monier-Williams (daughter of Professor Monier-Williams) now Mrs Samuel Bickersteth: in a frame 21¼ x 25½ in. Taken in 1864-5." Lewis Carroll Centenary in London 1932, including a Catalogue of the Exhibition, with Notes; an Essay on Dodgson's Illustrators by Harold Hartley; and additional literary pieces (chiefly unpublished), London, Bumpus, 1932.This was one of two exhibitions held in the centenary year of 1932 (the other was at Columbia University) that were solely devoted to Lewis Carroll and they did a great deal to firmly establish his world-class importance and reputation, stimulating scholarly and biographical interest.

        [Industritställningen i Stockholm 1866 / Industrial exhibition in Stockholm 1866]

      [1866] Overzized albumen photo mounted on card board. Photo 43 x 34,5 cm. Card board 55,5 x 44 cm. A repaired tear in the lower left corner of the photo. Some dirt, foxing and creases to the card board. Some dirt to the verso. The photo with nice tonal range.. The photo shows the main hall of the exhibition with "Molins fontän", here still in plaster. It was later iron cast and placed roughly at the same spot in Kungsträdgården. The photo might have been published by the firm Eurenius & Quist who was the official photographers of the exhibition. The firm issued several very large photos of the event. It might also be by Johannes Jaeger who executed a famous photo of the opening ceremony. Often called Sweden´s first press photo, since a copy was delivered to the king within a couple of hours. Again it might be by someone else. You can see people sitting at the benches, some of them transparent since they were moving when the photo was exposed. Such a large photo required a long exposure time. Across the hall you can see a sign for the norwegian section of the exhibition. At the front is a sign with the company name "Bing & Gröndahl". A scarce photo in a very large format. The glass negative must have been quite a challenge to handle
