[DODGSON, Charles Lutwidge ('Lewis Carroll')]. Algebraical Formulae and Rules for the use of candidates for responsions. [Oxford: University Press, 1870.] Bifolium (230 x 144mm); printed on cream paper. (Light soiling.) Provenance: contemporary scholar (two emendations in black ink).
RARE. Williams, Madan, Green and Crutch record only the Sir Harold Hartley copy, and ABPC only the Falletta copy (Christie's, 30 November 2005, lot 63). Dodgson's diary mentions only Algebraical Formulae for Responsions (WMGC 65) which he took to the University Press on 21 May 1868. It is possible that the present pamphlet is an expanded and improved version. Williams, Madan, Green and Crutch 76; Mathematical Pamphlets 13.
