Item Description: Macmillan, London, 1872. Hardcover. Book Condition: Collectible-Very Good. John Tenniel (illustrator). Early Printings. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Presentation copies of two of the most important books in children's literature. The ALICE is inscribed in Dodgson's hand, "Violet Mary Ann Eliza Molyneux, from the Author. Sep. 18, 1873." LOOKING GLASS is inscribed, "Agnes Elizabeth Sophia Molyneux from the Author. Sep. 18, 1873." These are the A. Edward Newton copies that were sold by Parke-Bernet Galleries in New York, April 16-18, 1941, Lot # 336. The AAIW, inscribed to Violet, is the 37th thousand, in the original Macmillan red cloth and is about very good (hinges are cracking). The TTLG, inscribed to Agnes, is the 29th thousand and is in similar condition. Newton's Oak Knoll bookplates are on the front pastedowns, and those of Roger Hawes West on the front free endpapers. They are housed in a magnificent solander box custom made by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Edward Wakeling, editor of Lewis Carroll's diaries, has affirmed that the presentations are genuine, and he suggests that the books were probably sent by Carroll from Guildford because the presentations are in black ink (books he signed in London were almost always inscribed in purple ink). In his diary on September 16, 1873, Carroll noted: "Went to hear the 'infant pianistes,' Agnes and Violet Molyneux, and was quite charmed with their performance. Left a note for Mrs. Molyneux offering Alice's Adventures." Wakeling indicates that Carroll visited the family the next day and states that "this appears to be his only contact with them. An extensive search of census records and registers of performing artists has failed to locate them." We have found a reference to the Molyneux sisters in the July 5, 1875 issue of The Musical World, reporting a piano recital they performed at the Beethoven Rooms on May 27, 1875. The September 25, 1875 issue of The Musical World reports another concert by the sisters at the Royal Aquarium in Brighton. Although one of Carroll's maternal great grandmothers was Jane Molyneux, there is no evidence that he was related to the sisters. INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Red Cloth Covered Boards.

Item Description: Limited Editions Club, New York, 1932. Hardcover. 225 x 149 mm (8 7/8 x 5 7/8"). xi, [iii], 182, [4] pp.; xii, [4] leaves, 212 pp., [2] leaves. Two separately published (but obviously related) volumes. "Wonderland" with an introduction by Henry Seidel Canby; "Looking Glass" with an introduction by Carl Van Doren. EACH VOLUME ONE OF 1,500 COPIES (the first #1006, the second #408), BOTH SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES, THE "ORIGINAL ALICE." "WONDERLAND" ALSO SIGNED BY FREDERIC WARNE, the volume's designer. Publisher's elaborately gilt red morocco (for "Wonderland") and matching blue calf (for "Looking Glass"), both bindings designed by Frederic Warde, each with publisher's (somewhat darkened and soiled) slipcase that repeats the spine decoration from the volume. With 94 original illustrations by John Tenniel, the 43 illustrations for "Wonderland" re-engraved on wood by Bruno Rollitz, the 51 illustrations in "Looking Glass" re-engraved by Frederic Warde. "Wonderland": Quarto-Millenary 36; Newman & Wiche 36a. "Looking Glass": Quarto-Millenary 65; Newman & Wiche 65a. Just barely perceptible fading to spines, a breath of rubbing to extremities, a few trivial internal imperfections, but still easily and clearly FINE COPIES, fresh, bright, and clean inside and out. These attractively-produced private press copies of two of the best-loved works of children's literature represent the only editions to be signed by the girl for whom they were written, Alice Liddell Hargreaves (1852-1934). Alice was the daughter of Henry Liddell, dean of Christ Church, Oxford, where Charles Dodgson was a lecturer in mathematics. Dodgson, whose hobby was photography, frequently photographed Alice and her sisters and became a close family friend, playing games with, and making up stories for, the children. According to DNB, it was on a picnic on 4 July 1862 that "he invented the story of Alice in Wonderland. The real Alice was then aged ten and pleaded with him to write Alice's adventures down for her, which he carefully did, supplying his own illustrations, in a green notebook that has become one of the most cherished literary manuscripts in the British Library." Over the years, Alice steadfastly refused requests to sign copies of other editions of the two works. But, late in her life, and prompted by a significant monetary inducement ($1.50 per signature), she was prevailed upon to sign volumes from both of the present editions. She did not, in fact, sign all of the copies of these printings (subscribers not willing to pay a surcharge did not get an autographed copy). "Quarto Millenary" estimates that Hargreaves signed about 1,200 copies of "Wonderland," and Newman & Wiches says that only about 500 of "Looking Glass" were signed. Our volume owes its appeal in large measure to the taste and skill of typographer and designer Frederic Warde (1894-1939), whose lovely italic hand graces the colophon here. Perhaps best known for developing the elegant italic font Arrighi, Warde began his career as a printer with the house of William Edwin Rudge, later supervised the legendary Officina Bodoni, and later still did work for several American private presses, including Crosby Gaige and, of course, the Limited Editions Club. EACH VOLUME ONE OF 1,500 COPIES (the first #1006, the second #408), BOTH SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES, THE "ORIGINAL ALICE." "WONDERLAND" ALSO SIGNED BY FREDERIC WARNE, the volume's designer.

Item 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
