Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872, 1872. 2 works, octavo (174 x 115; 174 x 115 mm). Early 20th-century dark red crushed morocco by Root, decorative gilt spines, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing a roll tool border with an art nouveau floral motif at the corners, gilt stamp in the centre of each cover (showing Alice, the Red Queen, the White Queen, and the Cheshire Cat), all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, with the original cloth covers and spines bound-in at the end. Housed in a custom-made morocco-trimmed marbled paper slipcase. With the simple book labels of the distinguished American bibliophile John Jay Paul. Extremities of slipcase a little rubbed. A very attractive set. 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 Clarendon 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 most handsomely bound set. Williams, Madan & Green 46 & 84. Bookseller Inventory # 109266

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: 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. Signed by Illustrator. Bookseller Inventory # LC008

Item Description: London William Heinemann [1907], 1907. DE LUXE LARGE-PAPER ISSUE LIMITED to 1130 hand-numbered copies of the first edition with Rackham's illustrations. With 13 fine colour plates tipped to stiff brown stock with captioned tissue guards, illustrated end-leaves and 14 black and white illustrations throughout the text, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a very fine signed binding from the Chelsea Bindery of full red morocco. The upper cover gilt lettered and pictorially stamped using images from the original cloth covers, the spine with tall raised bands gilt stippled, creating gilt framed compartments, three of which are lettered in gilt, additional gilt lettering at the tail, gilt ruled board edges, wide turn-ins elaborately decorated in gilt with a floral vine motif, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. xi, 161, [1] pp. A very fine and beautiful copy of this wonderful limited edition, without flaw. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER LIMITED DE LUXE PRINTING OF THIS SIGNIFICANT WORK, IN A VERY FINE BINDING. This edition, was the first with Arthur Rackham's illustrations, and due to his being out of the country is the only De Luxe Limited Edition of one of his works to not be signed. With the publishing of this book a great controversy ensued, as critics protested the "presumptuous" replacement of John Tenniel's illustrations, but this only spurred sales of the book. The publisher sold 14,322 copies of the general trade issue of ‘Alice’ at 6 shillings each within the first 6 months of its issue, resulting in Arthur Rackham’s all-time most successful book debut. While reviewers scorned Rackham’s artistic audacity, the public supported his fresh interpretation. One uncharacteristically favorable review by The Daily Telegraph remarked, "The ‘Alice’.is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel’s imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish.Mr. Rackham’s inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel’s types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story.and extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands." - Hamilton Rackham’s ‘Alice’ is sure to delight readers today with its fanciful creatures, its charming depiction of the heroine Alice, and its consistent good humor. And be sure to look for the artist’s self-caricature in his rendition of the Mad Hatter in "The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.". Bookseller Inventory # 27220

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.

Item Description: New York: Doubleday Page & Co., 1907., 1907. The American Edition De Luxe[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. New York: Doubleday Page & Co. [n.d., 1907]. First American De Luxe Edition. Limited to 550 numbered copies (this copy being # 210) signed in red ink by the publisher. Large quarto (11 3/16 x 9 inches; 284 x 229 mm.). xii, 161, [1]. Thirteen tipped-in full-page color plates mounted on heavy brown paper, with lettered tissue-guards. Fourteen black and white drawings. One color plate (facing p. 70) with very small and hardly noticeable crease in lower left corner.Publishers quarter dark green cloth over light green boards. Front cover decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt with a color image of 'Alice' (from the frontispiece) pasted-on, spine decoratively lettered in gilt, pictorial endpapers printed in green, top edge gilt, others uncut. Slight wear to top of spine, feint tape stains on endpapers, minor fading to front board , still an excellent copy."Rackham's next undertaking after Peter Pan was the most controversial of his whole career. This was nothing less than a fresh illustration of Alice in Wonderland, a work so completely identified with the drawings by John Tenniel that it seemed to many critics almost blasphemous for anyone to attempt to prepare alternatives. As soon as it became clear, however, that a spate of new illustrated editions was being planned to follow the expiry of the original copyright (in fact, at least seven appeared in England in the first possible year, 1907), it was surely not to be regretted that an artist of Rackham's quality had taken up the challenge. Even The Times, in the course of an unfavourable review, recognized that Rackham 'feels his privilege and his responsibilities', but this critic, obsessed by Tenniel, found Rackham's humour 'forced and derivative' and discovered 'few signs of true imaginative instinct' in his work. A stranger wrote at once to sympathize: 'I felt I must express my indignation at the injustice of the "Times" criticism. However, I am certain that Time is on your side, and that nothing but prejudice prevents your superiority being recognised now. Your delightful Alice is alive and makes by contrast Tenniel's Alice look a stiff wooden puppet. This went much further than Rackham would have done, for he had no wish to set himself up against Tenniel. He would have been well content with the verdict of the Daily Telegraph, that it would be fortunate for Lewis Carroll's memory if his masterpiece encountered 'no less inspired interpreters than Mr Arthur Rackham'." (Derek Hudson, Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work. pp 70 and 72.)"The Alice. is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel's imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish. Mr. Rackham's inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel's types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story.[and] extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands" (Daily Telegraph).Latimore & Haskell, p. 29. Riall, p.77. I. Bookseller Inventory # 03503

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co. 1889, 1889. Quarto. Original white cloth-backed pictorial boards, titles to front cover in red and black, orange endpapers. Wear to corners and head and foot of spine, spine darkened, some light foxing to preliminaries, some internal finger marks, diagonal crease to page 36. Mechanical enlargements of 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations, enlarged from the originals and printed in colour; text printed in brown ink. Cover illustrations by E. G. Thomson. First edition, first impression, third state, with the original illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on page 34 with Alice's profile visible, overpriced with two shillings on the title page. Genuinely rare thus: copies are overwhelmingly met within the second printing. Ten thousand copies of the first print run were printed by Edward Evans on toned paper. Dodgson rejected the entire edition in sheets as the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy" and instructed they should be reprinted. The casings prepared had Alice asleep beneath a tree on the front cover and a picture of the March Hare on the back. Four thousand copies of the rejected sheets were sent to the States and the book was published with a tipped-in preliminary leaf and title page dated 1890. In 1891 after the publication of the reprinted edition, some of the original copies were bound up and overprinted "People's Edition, Price Two Shillings" on the title page, as is this copy.
