London: Macmillan & Co. 1866. 8vo (5 3/8 x 7 5/8"), early full polished blue calf with triple gilt rules by Riviere with the original covers and spine bound in at the rear. The spine has raised bands in 6 compartments with a gold flower design, all edges gilt, gilt dentelles, a Fine copy. First published edition, with 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. The publishing history of this title is now well known. Because Carroll was unhappy with the original printing of "Alice" he recalled all copies to destroy them. It was re-set by Clay and released in Novmber of 1865 with the 1866 date on the title page. Only a very few copies of this first recalled issue are known to exist. The remainder of the unacceptable first issue sheets were sent to New York and bound by Appleton with a new title page. TIPPED-IN TO THIS COPY IS A QUIRKY 2-SIDED LETTER BY CARROLL USING HIS CHARACTERISTIC PURPLE INK! Dated Feb. 8. 1888 it reads: Dear Steward, I am much obliged for the estimates for the electric bell, and shall be quite willing to bear my share of the expense, under any of the arrangements named, I should want a 'push' in each of my 2 bedrooms - Hadland thought that (as both rooms look out North) the best way to reach them would be to continue the roof cord, & bring it down outside and in at the windows: however, you can arrange it as you think best. Please not to charge further Quarterage, for C.R., to Mr. S. W. Worthington. Very Truly Yours, C. L. Dodgson.". Bookseller Inventory # 35168

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).

The Jennie Crocker Henderson copies with her bookplate in each volume. First published edition of ÒAlice in WonderlandÓ. First edition first issue of ÒThrough the Looking GlassÓ. Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenniel) felt to be the unsatisfactory printing of Tenniel's illustrations, and was never offered for public sale. For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865 (though dated the following year). It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. This copy was last sold in 1971 by John Howell-Books to the present consignor. Loker, Grolier ChildrenÕs 100, 35.

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 # 35804

The book was re-set by Clay's for publication by Macmillan sometime around the beginning of November 1865, while the rejected 1865 sheets were given a new tipped-in title and re-issued by Appleton's in New York in April or May 1866.

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: London: Macmillan, 1866. 8vo, [i] h-t; [iv] frontis.; [v] t-p; [viiÐix] All in the golden afternoon . . . ; [xi] Contents; [1]Ð192 pp. 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: Macmillan and Co. Ltd., [c.1910], 1910. Sheet size: 82 × 60 cm Some very light creasing and a touch of marginal spotting, otherwise fresh and clean. Presented in a black wooden frame with UV glass. Colour lithographed linen-backed wall-poster First and only edition. The use of John Macfarlane is the only instance of Macmillan having licensed illustrations for Alice in Wonderland by an artist other than Tenniel. In its original format, the set of six was issued joined at the head as a kind of flipchart, most likely intended for classroom display. The posters could be mounted on an easel and the illustrations displayed one at a time while the class read through the book. The complete set is now rare: OCLC locates just one set, COPAC adds another at Oxford. Many must have been split up and varnished for hanging in the schoolroom: two individual prints in that condition were offered at auction in 1997. As part of the celebrations for the first Alice's Day in 2007, the Bodleian staged an exhibition including the earliest editions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and amongst "Other highlights of the display [were] two posters from a set of 6 based on Tenniel's designs by J. MacFarlane.". Bookseller Inventory # 68639

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

Item Description: Lee and Shepard, Boston, 1869. Hardcover. First Edition. The first edition printed in America. [The "first American edition" of 1866 consisted of rejected British sheets that were given an Appleton (the New York publisher) title page.] Some foxing to the text, starting at the hinges, a label removal shadow on the front flyleaf, and a bookplate on the front pastedown. A very good copy in original green cloth of this landmark of children's literature, which has survived a century and a half and continues to delight and mystify readers today as one can assume it did the original Alice, Carroll's young friend Alice Liddell, the recipient of the first manuscript version of the story. Housed in a custom dustwrapper and clamshell case. Bookseller Inventory # 030701
