Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Alice in Wonderland Rounded Corners Issue 1930 Alice in Wonderland Rounded Corners Issue 1930 48 - In the late 19th century, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a lecturer in mathematics at Oxford University, wrote poems and books for children. We know him better under his pen-name Lewis Carroll, author of “Alice in Wonderland”. Some half a century later, in 1930, Carreras issued a series of 48 Alice in Wonderland cards. The cards explore the bizarre fantasy world in which Alice encounters characters such as The Cheshire Cat and The Grin, the Queen (off with their heads), the White Rabbit (too late), The Mad Hatter and The Mock Turtle, all beautifully illustrated in colour on a white background, on a thick card with round corners and an ornamental back. Double-numbered 1 to 48 and in 16 groups of three they are designed for playing a game.
