. . . said Alice; “ I can't remember things as I used . . .
“ Can't remember what things ? ” said the Caterpillar.
“ Well, I've tried to say . . . but it all came different ! ” Alice replied in a very melancholy voice.
—— Advice From A Caterpillar, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Description in English

The book contents published by MACMILLAN have discrepancies, such as redundant words, missing words, different wording, & different punctuations. The reason of this could be typesetting error or modified by Carroll, and other publishing company also made more changes as well (e.x. change British spelling of "waggon" to American spelling "wagon"). I also have questiions about the changes of MACMILLAN editions that were published after Carroll died.

I don't have all these differet editions, and I base on MACMILLAN 1922 Miniature Edition for this proofread, and also refer to the following 5 editions:

So, please note that when I say "only", it means the only one in these 6 editions

After I complete the proofreading, will combine all and publish my first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in two or three e-formats, including html, odt (OpenOffice Writer 2.0), and/or Acrobat pdf. If I can get more certain MACMILLAN editions, especially the 1st edition, I'll do further proofreading.

Description in Chinese

原來的 MACMILLAN 出版商每次新的排版都有內容上的差異,有多字的、有掉字的、用詞不同的、標點方式也不同。這可能是原作者 Carroll 作過修飾,也可能是排版所造成的,不管什麼原因,各個版本有內容的差異是個事實。而其他的出版商也造成許多新的差異,有的標點符號改變了,有的把英式拼法 (如 waggon) 改成美式拼法 (wagon) 。而 MACMILLAN 在 Carroll 過世後所印行的版本出現差異,則不知是否為原作者所作的修改。

我無法取得所有不同的版本,尤其是第一版的內容。所以這裡所作的校正是以 MACMILLAN 在 1922 年所印行的袖珍本為「底本」,另外參考了五種版本,包括原來的《地下奇遇記》手稿,另一本 MACMILLAN 的 1898 年版,Project Gutenberg 於 1991 年的公開至今的第 30 版, Martin Gardner 所寫的 The Annotated Alice (2000), 還有 GRAMERCY BOOKS 出版的 Lewis CARROLL — The Completer, Fully Illustrated Works (1995) 。除非有特別的說明,否則所提到的內容都侷限在這六個版本裡面。

這個校稿的版本完成後,會整理出由我「ㄚ亮」(aliang) 所校稿確定的「第一版」,這個版本會把差異的內容包含進來,放在差異處後面的方括號裡。未來有機會得到更多版本時,會再作進一步的校正。
