The purpose of this writing is kind of like sonar. To bounce and measure how far, and how wide, and how deeply the tunnel chases Alice after the rabbit, down and across site maps, to observe activity and correlations between searched traffic from unveiled web crawls, and far, far and away into the secret depths and reaches of rel = alternate hreflang = x for Google page analytics unto global storefront access in different languages for different people, in different places above the rabbit-hole.
Thank you for your patience with me in this study "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"
Exerts from the novel, "Alice's Adventure In Wonderland," of the chapter, "Down the Rabbit Hole," written by Lewis Carrol:
"There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!' (when she thought it over afterwards it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but, when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.
In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.
The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well."
“Lewis Carroll” was the nom-de-plume of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), author, mathematician, and photographer, best known to book collectors (and children everywhere) as the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865), perhaps the best known children’s book in the language and certainly one of the most influential. After Alice, no children’s book could afford to be stuffy, didactic, or entirely free of fantasy again.
A pioneer of early photography, Dodgson has been called “the most outstanding photographer of children in the 19th century” (Gernsheim, 28). Original examples of his photographic prints are rare and highly sought after.
Other items of Dodgson-related interest are original illustrations for his works, particularly those of his best-known artistic collaborator, John Tenniel. As well as Tenniel's original pencil drawings, electrotype woodblocks made from them by the Dalziel Brothers occasionally come to market.
