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. Housed in a early custom box, which shows some wear. 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, 1866. 8vo, [i] h-t; [iv] frontis.; [v] t-p; [viiÐix] All in the golden afternoon . . . ; [xi] Contents; [1]Ð192. With 42 wood-engraved illustrations in the text (including the frontispiece) after Tenniel (1820Ð1914) by the Dalziel Brothers. Full green morocco by Stikeman, mostly faded to brown a bit worn. First published edition. This story of a Victorian childÕs dreamlike encounters with a succession of bizarre and loquacious creatures made an impact from the moment of its publication. As an unprecedented work offantasy, enriched with brilliant wordplay, nonsense verse, and a deep vein of mathematical and logical puzzling, AliceÕs Adventures in Wonderland invites interpretations on multiple levels and has engaged generations of children and scholars alike.Dodgson, a mathematician at Christ Church, Oxford, first told the story of the girl who fell down the rabbit hole to the three Liddell sisters on a rowboat outing on July 4, 1862. Alice, his favorite among them, asked him to write it down, and some two years later, in 1864, he presented her with the handwritten and hand-illustrated manuscript of ÒAliceÕs Adventures under GroundÓ as a Christmas gift, while at the same time preparing an expanded version for publication under the pseudonym of ÒLewis Carroll.Ó DodgsonÕs chosen illustrator, John Tenniel, an established political cartoonist, declined his suggested model and drew Alice with the straight hair, neat pinafore, and buckle shoes that define her to this day, despite hundreds of subsequent interpretations.The first printing of Wonderland (1865) was suppressed owing to concerns about production quality of the illustrations, with only fifty copies with a Macmillan title-page escaping into the world. In November 1865 (but dated 1866 for the Christmas market), the first edition was published and immediately sold out. In 1866, Appleton of New York issued an edition using the sheets from the withdrawn 1865 printing. Of the 2,000 copies first printed, 1,950 were bound in England for sale in the United States with AppletonÕs title-page printed by the Clarendon Press in Oxford. When copyright expired in 1907, a tide of new editions followed that has never slowed: dozens appear every year and there are translations in over a hundred languages. Together with its sequel Through the Looking-Glass (1872), the story has become a universal reference for art, marketing, pop culture, and political satire. Prim yet precocious Alice has achieved the rare feat of becoming both a mainstream and a countercultural icon.

Item Description: London William Heinemann, 1907. First edition illustrated by Arthur Rackham. 8vo. Green cloth with gilt vignettes. Top edge gilt. Signed by Arthur Rackham on the half title. A very good copy, with slight fading to the spine and some foxing to the preliminary pages and page edges. Pictorial endpapers illustrated in green line. Thirteen colour plates under captioned tissue guards and lots of black and white illustrations. Arthur Rackham married Edyth Starkie in July 1903. Edyth's family were less than enthusiastic about the marriage and on the day of the wedding their suspicions were almost confirmed. Edyth's father having died some years previously, it was to be her brother Robert giving her away. As they arrived at the church they spotted the bride groom disappearing in a hansom cab. "There you are Edyth. He's left you already," exclaimed Robert. In fact Arthur was dashing home to collect the forgotten wedding ring. Presumably the men overcame their differences and this copy is the first of a series of books presented by Rackham to his brother in law. Signed copies of Alice are extremely rare, unusually even the Edition de Luxe did not bear Rackham's signature. Bookseller Inventory # 32091
