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: Diane de Selliers, Paris, 2006. Pat Andrea (illustrator). First edition thus. Oblong quarto [27 cm by 32 cm]. Two hardcover volumes in slipcase with prospectus. Dual language edition (French and English) translated into French by Henri Parisot. Illustrations by Pat Andrea. Fine in like slipcase. Pat Andrea is a Dutch-born artist whose work has achieved international success, including exhibitions at international venues such as the Centre Pomidou. He has been hailed as a modern master of magical realism. With his fully-realized interpretation of Lewis Carroll's two Wonderland volumes, Andrea turns the story on its head to present an ever-changing Alice with an angrier and more disturbing edge than that of traditional Alice illustration, with dark glimmers of bondage, sexual hegemony, and voyeurism. A stunning addition to the visual Alice canon. Bookseller Inventory # 30746

Looking-Glass is the 1928 1st thus. Published & printed in England, these apparently made their way to the United States since they have stamped dustjacket prices of $2.00. Tenniel b&w illustrations throughout with a total of 32 color plates. 442 pp. 3-color pictorial cloth with color pastedowns and endpapers. Books are clean, square, bright, flat, solid, and unmarked with excellent color inside & out. Lovely interiors. Binding opens a bit wide in two spots in Looking-Glass. A very little bit of edgewear. Some small dark spots to the foot of each book which do not impinge on the interior; Wonderland has a little foxing to the head which also does not extend into the interior. Dustjackets Good only: whole with chips and wear to the edges -- still about 96% present. Some fading and some discoloration but, all in all, they are weathered in an attractive and uniform manner; the stars of the show here are the cover illustrations which present quite well. Wonderland has almost a full page of Lewis Carroll adverts with prices to the back cover. (As is often the case with such things, the 6/- price on the backstrip of the dustjacket cannot, apparently, be matched to any of the prices on the back cover.) We ship daily. Out to you w/tracking or insurance. Bookseller Inventory # 5000050510505
