Details of the book: But before Alice received her copy, Dodgson was already preparing it for publication and expanding the 18,000-word original to 35,000 words, most notably adding the episodes about the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Tea-Party. In 1865, Dodgson's tale was published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by "Lewis Carroll" with illustrations by John Tenniel. The first print run of 2,000 was held back because Tenniel had objections over the print quality.[3] A new edition, released in December of the same year, but carrying an 1866 date, was quickly printed. As it turned out, the original edition was sold with Dodgson's permission to the New York publishing house of Appleton. The binding for the Appleton Alice was virtually identical with the 1866 Macmillan Alice, except for the publisher's name at the foot of the spine. The title page of the Appleton Alice was an insert cancelling the original Macmillan title page of 1865, and bearing the New York publisher's imprint and the date 1866.

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: D. APPLETON AND CO. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Once upon a July 4th in 1862, Reverend Charles Dodgson began an extemporaneous yarn intended merely to liven up a five mile boat trip for three little girls named Lorina, Edith, and Alice. Though Reverend Dodgson had often told tales to pass the time away, according to his diary, young Alice insisted that this one in particular 'might be written out for her'. In 1865, Alice's wish was ready to be presented to the world in printed form as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, complete with 42 of John Tenniel's illustrations. However, upon viewing the finished work, Tenniel flatly rejected the printing. Although Tenniel ostensibly took issue with its quality, many historians now suspect that this rather expensive objection might be attributed to his tumultuous working relationship with Carroll. Carroll ultimately acquiesced to Tenniel's objection and pulled the original printings from circulation, but was fortunately able to later sell the 1,952 sets to D. Appleton & Company, who published those sheets in this red cloth-bound first edition of the classic children's tale. Tenniel's illustrations display a simple yet wonderfully fantastic vision of Alice that has become embedded in our collective imagination. What began as Dodgson's small yarn has been spun into the golden, fanciful tale that established Carroll's place in the literary world and still enchants readers of all ages today. 8vo. 1st American and 1st regularly published edition. Original red cloth. A.e.g. Rebacked, with original spine laid down. Some loss to head and foot of spine, where new backstrip shows through. Light smudging and soiling to boards. Smudging and faint soiling to a few leaves. Very good. [$15,000]. Bookseller Inventory # 1011842

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.

Book 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. 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 # 68640
