In 1886, Macmillan issued cheaper versions of both books styled ‘People’s Edition’ in green pictorial cloth. Dodgson took the opportunity of making a number of corrections to the text. In 1876, Dodgson wrote a four page leaflet – An Easter Greeting to every child who loves " Alice”. Copies were loosely inserted in copies of the newly published The Hunting of the Snark (1876), and incorporated in the People’s editions of the two books in 1887.
In 1884 Dodgson wrote a five verse poem ‘Christmas Greetings’. This was first published as a separate leaflet (1884), but later incorporated in the People’s editions of the two books in 1887, and in the final revised standard editions in 1897.
