Book Description: Macmillan and Co, London, 1866. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. [Richard Clay for] Macmillan and Co., 1866. Octavo. Original red cloth, gilt-stamped, spine gilt-lettered, edges gilt. Electrotyped frontispiece, and 42 illustrations from the woodcuts by Dalziel after John Tenniel. First published edition, in the earliest state with pale blue endpapers (rather than the more usual dark green), with inverted "S" in the last line of contents page. Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenner) 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 re-set 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. The unused sheets of the 1865 Alice went to Appleton's for use in the first American edition, published in May 1866. Williams-Madan-Green-Crutch 46. Very good condition with some foxing sporadically throughout book, previous owner's handwritten name on front free end paper, book very slightly leaning, small sticker by binder on rear paste-down.

Book Description: Appleton ,, New York:, 1866. First edition, second issue. Original red cloth, gilt, gilt edges. This first printing was produced by the Clarendon Press at Dodgson's expense, and it was intended for Macmillan to publish in 1865, however the artist Tenniel reportedly complained about the printing quality of his illustrations and Dodgson ordered the entire printing withdrawn. Only some 20 copies of the first issue, with the original 1865 title page, are known to have survived. Dodgson ordered a new edition, printed by Richard Clay, and Macmillan sold the sheets of the approximately 2000 remaining copies to Appleton, with new title pages, for publication in America. This, thus, is the earliest printing in its only obtainable form. The Frank J. Hogan - Charles J. Rosenbloom with their bookplates. Christmas 1866 gift inscription. Ends of spine frayed, corners a trifle worn, spine gilt a bit rubbed, very good condition, with some fraying at the ends of the spine. First edition, second issue. Bookseller Inventory # 28710

Book 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).

Book 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.

A beautiful set, bound in the early 20th century by Baytnun in full red crushed levant morocco with raised bands on the spine and intricate gilt detailing.

"Through the Looking Glass" is a clean, fresh First Edition with "wade" for "wabe" on p. 21 and one page of publisher's ads following the story. A fantastic combination of fine bindings with one of the best-loved children's story ever written.

Book Description: Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. First Edition. A matching set (both volumes number 574) and each volume signed by Alice [Liddell] Hargreaves, the author's inspiration for the Alice stories, lacking the slipcases. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is Near Fine with bright gilt and leather in great condition. Signed by Frederic Ward, in addition to Alice Hargreaves. Through the Looking Glass in Very Good condition with chipping to leather at top of spine, along spine edges and wear at corners. Both volumes with previous owner's signature to the front paste-down and some toning to paste-downs and end pages due to publisher's glue. Both volumes complete and internal contents are bright and attractive. Alice Hargreaves refused to sign other editions of the Alice in Wonderland books until these two Limited Editions Club books, shortly before her death. Each copy one of 1500, although fewer than the full 1500 were reportedly signed by Alice. Quite scarce to find a signed matching set of one of the all-time great works of children's fiction. Both books housed in an attractive modern slipcase. Additional photos available upon request. Very Good+. Bookseller Inventory # 167
