Alice in Blunderland

Watermarked PDF

On a rainy afternoon, Alice's traveling companions from her trips through Wonderland and the Looking Glass appear in her room with an irrestiable offer: "The Hatter has founded a model city, where everything goes just right, and we came to ask you to pay us a call."

And so begins Alice's adventure in Blunderland, a place where everything is owned by the City, including people's teeth; politeness and mutual respect is mandated by law; and the city leaders decide everything for everyone about anything (including what rhymes with "spatter").

First published in 1907, Alice in Blunderland is a political satire that is as relevant today as it was a century ago. In fact, it might be a little hard to tell that the Mad Hatter's perfect city isn't a mockery of what the greedy, overreaching and overbearing business leaders, politicians, and community activists aren't trying to acheive for America today. 

Alice in Blunderland: Sure to make you laugh... or cry, depending on where you're coming from.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
