Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1886, 1886. Octavo. Publisher's presentation binding in blue morocco, titles and decorations to spine and boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in custom quarter blue morocco and cloth solander box. With the Duchess of Albany's bookplate on the front pastedown. Extremities a little rubbed, some very minor wear to tips, small split to head of front hinge; an excellent copy. With 37 illustrations by the author. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author in his customary purple ink on the half-title, "Presented to H.R.H. The Duchess of Albany, by the author, in grateful recollection of three happy days, and of two sweet children, Aug. 6, 1889." The duchess replied on 17 August, acknowledging the gift: "It gives me much pleasure as I am a great friend of Alice and her adventures. I must now also thank you for your letter to me and the two charming books with which you made my children very happy. I think they will well remember the kind gentleman who spent so much time with them in amusing them and telling them stories." Dodgson knew her late husband, Prince Leopold, Queen Victoria's fourth son, who matriculated at Oxford on 27 November 1872; he had his portrait taken at Dodgson's Tom Quad studio at Christ Church in 1875 and signed his name in Dodgson's album. For a brief period during his studies the prince was romantically linked with Alice Liddell, and, though nothing came of the romance, the two remained cordial. In 1883 Alice (by then Mrs Hargreaves) wrote to congratulate the prince on the birth of his first child, Alice, at the same time inviting him to be godfather to her second son, Leopold Reginald, also born that year. The following year the prince died of a brain haemorrhage, but it was not until June 1889 that Dodgson became acquainted with his widow, while staying Hatfield House as a guest of Lord Salisbury. The Duchess was accompanied by her two children, Alice, and Charles, Duke of Albany aged 6 and 5 respectively. Dodgson – perhaps influenced by the coincidence of the little girl's name – made gifts of several of his works, including the present example. Dodgson struck up a friendship with the children, and regularly sent them gifts of puzzles or presentation copies of his books. Princess Alice recalled their early friendship in her autobiography: "Doctor Dodgson or 'Lewis Carroll' was especially kind to Charlie and me, though when I was five I offended him once, when, at a children's party at Hatfield, he was telling story. He was a stammerer and being unable to follow what he was saying I suddenly asked in a loud voice, 'Why does he waggle his mouth like that?' I was hastily removed by the lady-in-waiting. Afterwards he wrote that he 'liked Charlie but thought Alice would turn out badly.' He soon forgot all this and gave us books for Christmas with anagrams of our names on the fly-leaf." This is one of a very few known copies in this unrecorded presentation binding. By a letter to Macmillan of 17 December 1886, Dodgson is known to have requested three special copies, one in white vellum (the ultimate copy, for Alice Liddell) and two in morocco (one for Alice's mother, the other untraceable), which were ready in time to be inscribed on Christmas Day.

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1886, 1886. Octavo. Original white paper-covered boards, spine rebacked with vellum, covers lettered and decorated in gilt, cream coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom green solander box. Covers a little rubbed and soiled, tips a little worn, superficial cracks to hinges but held firm by reback, contents clean; overall very good. With 37 illustrations by the author. First edition. Presentation copy in the rare presentation binding of gilt-stamped white boards in imitation of vellum, with Dodgson's presentation inscription in purple ink on the half-title: "Lily Falle, from the Author, Jan. 1887." Albina "Lily" Bertram (b. 1859) was the second daughter of Joshua G. Falle (1820–1903), a judge and magistrate of the Royal Court of Jersey. On Dodgson's visit to the island in 1884, he records his first meeting with Lily: "I had several pleasant hours with Judge Falle, his wife, and daughters; Rozel (now Mrs. Le Cornu) I had met in London with her father but the beautiful Albina ("Lily" they call her) I had never seen before." Dodgson first met Rozel Falle in early August 1869, at the United Hotel in London, and inscribed a copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for her on 7 August. It is Rozel's copy to which Dodgson refers in the autograph letter that accompanies this book. Dated 8 August 1869, Dodgson writes: "Happening to be at my publisher's yesterday, I thought I might as well get the book for your little girl at once – I hope you received it safe." He goes on to ask for a photograph of Rozel: "if you have ever had a good one taken of your little daughter (a vignette of the head & shoulders would be the best form) I should be much obliged if you would kindly allow me to purchase a print of it, as a reminiscence of our very brief, tho' pleasant acquaintance." This style of white binding for presentation was Dodgson's preferred choice, a preference dating back to the first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, when he first ordered 50 copies for presentation in red cloth and a single copy for Alice herself in white vellum. Provenance: sold at auction, 3 March 1958, Sotheby's London, £17, buyer J. Schwartz, the book noted in the auction catalogue as lacking its spine. With the loosely inserted bookseller's description of James F. Drake, Inc, New York, describing the book as rebacked with vellum. The long-established firm of James F. Drake ceased trading in 1965.

Item Description: New York: Maecenas Press - Random House, 1969, 1969. Folio. Publisher's solander box of brown straight-grain morocco by Cartonnages Adine (Paris), leather-and-horn ties, gilt lettered spine, black silk portfolios for letterpress and illustrations, lettered in gilt on front covers. With all the original packaging material, including the shipping box. An excellent copy. 12 colour heliogravures and a four-colour etched frontispiece on Rives paper; together with a second suite of 12 plates on Japon Nacre paper. Title page, divisional titles and initial letters printed in bisque. First and limited Dalí edition, number XII of 200 copies, signed by Dali at the foot of the frontispiece and on the title page. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations - one for each chapter - for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28). One of the most extraordinary and beautiful editions of Alice. Bookseller Inventory # 111778

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).

With 13 full page color plates (and dozens of b/w illustrations in the text) by Arthur Rackham. IN THE ORIGINAL 1907 DUST JACKET which is fine, unrestored, and (in short) magnificent.

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
