Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872, 1872. 2 works, octavo (187 x 117; 177 x 117 mm). Late 20th century red full calf by Bayntun, spines emblematically tooled in gilt, twin green morocco labels, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt stamps of the White Rabbit and Red Queen, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, original cloth covers and spines bound-in. Housed in a fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. Early presentation inscription on half-title of Wonderland (dated "Xmas 1865"). A few light marks to bindings. Illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel. First published editions, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass (with the misspelling of "wabe" on p. 21). Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies of Wonderland was recalled by Dodgson, due to what either he, or Tenniel, felt to be the unsatisfactory reproduction of Tenniel's illustrations; "it has been questioned whether the first edition [of 1865] was ever published, in the strict sense of being on sale to the public and sent to the copyright libraries. Assuming that only a strict 2,000 copies were printed at the Clarendson Press, Dodgson seems to have regained all but 10 copies" (Williams, Madan & Green). For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865, although dated "1866". It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. A handsomely bound set. Williams, Madan & Green 46 & 84. Bookseller Inventory # 106088

Item Description: MacMillan and Co. 1866 &, London, 1872. First editions. Octavo, two volumes. Bound in early 20th-century full red morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Gilt vignettes to front and rear panels of each volume, gilt tooling on spine. All edges gilt, silk endpapers. Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear. In fine condition. A very attractive pair. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ‘Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete’" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866., 1866. 8vo. Pps. 192. Bound in red cloth, gilt, with powder blue endpapers, all edge gilt, housed in leather collectors box. Neat owner name to margin of title-page with ink faded to a soft yellow (now barely visible). Contents and binding are particularly fresh; a curious copy, originally purchased at auction where it achieved a considerable sum as a fine copy. Upon close inspection however we now believe this copy has been expertly bound in the first part of the twentieth century, using the same red cloth and binder's brasses which are virtually identical to the original design; in addition the correct powder-blue endpapers are employed. The leather box is likely from the 20's or 30's, and was conceivably made when this binding was first executed. A striking copy of a landmark title. FIRST PUBLISHED EDITION of 'Alice in Wonderland.' Lewis Carroll disliked the edition published in 1865 so much that he had them all recalled and shipped out to the U.S.A. where the title pages were removed and new American ones inserted. Carroll's annoyance was with the typography and general look of the book. The illustrator, Tenniel, also complained that his illustrations were not being done justice. It is estimated that no more than 20 of these 1865 issues escaped. They are mostly now held in institutional collections. The new sheets were issued in the UK the following year. It is uncertain whether the edition comprised two thousand of four thousand copies. Williams, Nadan, Green [46]. Bookseller Inventory # 45554

Item Description: London: William Heinemann, & New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1907. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Rackham, Arthur (illustrator). First Edition. First trade edition. Original green gilt pictorial cloth with Gryphon and Mock-Turtle to front board. Signed by Rackham with an original pen and ink drawing of a winged Gryphon and dated 23.3.08 on the half-title page. A very good copy with some rubbing and light wear to the extremities. The deluxe limited issue of Rackham's "Alice" was not signed by Rackham because he was traveling at the time of the book's publication. Housed in a gilt-decorated custom brown half-morocco fleece-lined folding box. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for one of his favorite child friends, Alice Liddell, who was also a frequent subject of Dodgson's portrait photography. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a prolific British artist and illustrator, best known for his deluxe editions of popular children's books. Artistically inclined since childhood, Rackham started out illustrating for newspapers, but it was not until he began drawing for children's literature that he received critical acclaim. In response to his burgeoning fame, Rackham's publisher, William Heinemann, began producing deluxe and trade editions of his illustrated works, the first being Rip Van Winkle in 1905. Deluxe editions were produced in a limited edition of numbered copies (ranging in quantity from 250 - 2,020), bound in vellum bindings, printed on handmade paper, and signed by the illustrator. The trade editions were published concurrently in simple bindings, on thinner paper, and with fewer color plates. This publication strategy benefited both publisher and artist; Rackham produced about one book per year and would have an annual gallery exhibition showing his original artwork for his latest book. The recipient of multiple awards for illustrations, Rackham was a diverse artist with a talent for both the fantastical and the intricacies of human nature, as demonstrated in his famous illustrations for Peter Pan.

Item Description: LEE AND SHEPARD, BOSTON, 1869. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First US Edition, First Printing A handsome rare example of the first American edition, first printing in beautiful condition. (after the very scarce first American edition made from sheets given to Appleton from the suppressed 1865 British edition, of which very few survived) The beautiful book has burgundy cloth boards in great condition with a gilt image to the front of Alice and faded gilt titles to the spine. The book has benefited from being rebacked with all the original materials intact, which has made for a very strong tight binding. The scarce slightly nicked original dark brown coated end papers are present with no owner names and no bookstore stamps. Inscription to the first blank internal page. The book has no edgewear, and entire outer page block still maintains the original bright gilt application. All the pages are present with some light handling marks, and a few nicks or an occasional tiny scant foxing mark. Three pages have the page numbers marked out in pencil (page 153, 154, 155). Please see the many detailed images. No dust jacket. A very handsome example of this classic, fragile, highly collectible book at a great price for this title in the original binding with original end papers present. Presents well on the shelf. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for other rare titles. Bookseller Inventory # 001012
