Elizabeth ("Bessie") Babcock of Croydon (d. 1936) may have been a member of a furniture-making firm based in Oxford. In June 1883 Dodgson wrote to J.R. Dasent recommending Messrs. Babcock for carving the legs for a slab of elm given to Christ Church to be made into a table.
This lot also includes a typewritten note from the British Museum (c. 1948), a handwritten card of provenance and an incomplete carbon of a letter to The Times (31 December 1937) making reference to the autograph letter.
