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.

Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenniel) 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 reset 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. This copy was last sold in 1971 by John Howell-Books to the present consignor. Loker, Grolier Children's 100, 35.

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).

Item Description: Limited Editions Club 1932 & 1935, New York, 1932. Hardcover. John Tenniel (illustrator). Two volumes in original full blue morocco and original full red morocco leather bindings with heavy gilt decorations. Each is copy #509 of 1500 copies with the original John Tenniel illustrations and with typography and binding by Frederick Warde who has SIGNED the first volume. Each copy is additionally SIGNED by Alice Hargreaves, "the original Alice." Only about 500 copies of the first title and about 1000 of the second were signed by her a few years before her death. Alice refused to sign other editions of this famous book in her lifetime, written by Carroll for her when she was young Alice Liddell, but she was convinced with the help of monetary compensation at an advanced age to sign these copies. Monthly Letter for ALICE'S ADVENTURES laid in. Many have praised these books, but perhaps novelist Sir Walter Besant's remark on ALICE IN WONDERLAND is the most insightful: "It admits us into a state of being which, until it was written, was not only unexplored but undiscovered." Very mild sunning to the spine of the Wonderland book. Fine, bright copies in Fine slipcases. Exceptional condition. Bookseller Inventory # 017613

Item Description: Macmillan, London, 1877. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Good. John Tenniel (illustrator). Carroll, Lewis [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]. THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, or what Alice Found There. London: Macmillan, 1877. Early Edition, published five years after the first edition. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO THIS NEPHEW, inscribed on the half-title: "Bertram James Collingwood/ from his affte. Uncle/ the Author/ August. 7. 1878." Original cloth, all edges gilt. GOOD only, having endured old and inexpert attempts at repair to the spine and inner hinges. There is some dark smudging to the last eight pages but the covers are relatively clean. While not glistening with eye appeal, this is an important copy having been presented to one of the author's two beloved nephews (the other became his biographer). Bertram James Collingwood [1871- 1934] shared his uncle's love for mathematics and logic (illuminating letters between the two which discuss these subjects can be found in various institutions). When Dodgson made his funeral arrangements, he arranged for Bertram to receive (in 1898) that portion of his library related to Mathematics, Science, and Medicine. Like his uncle, Collingwood became a professor and had a brilliant career at University (Cambridge) but, unlike his uncle, he was a fanatical sportsman and is best known today for having donated the "Collingwood Cup" which is still the championship trophy for Irish University Football, celebrating its 100th birthday in 2014. While we have seen numerous copies of the author's inscribed books, those actually presented to members of his family are highly uncommon, especially in original cloth. In a splendid new quarter-morocco slipcase. Inscribed By Author. Bookseller Inventory # 002061

Item Description: Dodge, New York, 1909. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Bessie Pease Guttman (illustrator). First Edition. Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. New York: Dodge, (1909). Illustrations by Bessie Pease Gutmann. A FINE bright copy with first issue decorated endpapers in the Original Dust Jacket (which is slightly soiled, a little chipped, but virtually complete and a wonderful survival). Research suggests, but can't confirm, that this is also the first issue of the dust jacket. There are more ornate DJs which occasionally appear bearing the same $1.50 price but also a later street address (not that found on the title page) on the back panel. Whether a first issue or a variant dust jacket, it is rare indeed. The Lovett bibliography doesn't have a clue on the subject. Bessie Pease Gutmann (1876-1960) was an American magazine, calendar and postcard illustrator who specialized in innocent looking cupid-like young children. Of the famous Wonderland illustrators, her Alice looks about three or four years old and thus has a curious purity to her, surprisingly charming and appealing. Bookseller Inventory # 002047

Item Description: Mansfield and Wessels, New York, 1899. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good ++. Blanche McManus (illustrator). 1st Edition. RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- TRUE FIRST PRINTINGS !! >>>>ONLY PRINTING, ALL BLANCHE McMANUS COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS! RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- RARE FIRST & ONLY PRINTINGS !! Yes, they are the ONLY PRINTING done in the Original Grey Cloth & Published by Mansfield & Wessels. The Second Printing (Edition) in 1900 was done in Mustard Cloth with Identical Illustrations on both book covers, unlike this First Set with Different Illustrations on the 2. Also, The Copyright was 1900 by Wessels only! There are a number of reasons why, including Wessels taking the Company late in 1899 & an error in the contents listing that needed clarification (Number of Color Plates in "LOOKING GLASS" Was Stated as 12 --IN ERROR! Publication was stopped after this printing, and the Company was taken over by Wessels who did publish it again in early 1900, but in the different Color Cloth, New Cover Designs, & CORRECTION of PLATE LISTING ERROR! That error was in "Through the Looking Glass" which had the specific error in which the number of Color Plates it was published with was Copyright 1899 by Mansfield & Wessels, Both in Very Good - Near Fine Condition. Mansfield & Wessels (New York) published the First Issues of Lewis Carroll's two classic tales to be fully illustrated by an artist other than Tenniel. Fortunately, they chose the incomparable Blanche McManus!! Similar Front Color Embossed Illustrations over Original Grey Cloth with Gilt Titles and yellow/blue/red characters, each title having a different character layout. __________________________________________________________________ NOTE: The question to ask when you view this and the Companion 1900 listing is this: Why were 2 Printings/Varieties, and only 2, done within 1 year of each other. That may seem silly to ask - of course publishers made many impressions of books over years. But that is not the case here. There were only these two (not counting the compendiums done later)! Other than the interpersonal complications of Wessels and McManus being Married at the time, There were two basic publication reasons: 1. The Original 1899 "Looking Glass" had a publisher's error -- specifically, the number of Color Plates it was published with was listed as 12 in the title page. But there were ONLY 10.Never any more! Dealers invariably mislabel their books as "missing" 2 Color Plates in the "Looking Glass". Now, if they view my listings, they will know the error -- an I will have given up a trade secret!! The 1899 clearly states Twelve (12); and the 1900 CORRECTS The Error, Clearly stating Ten (10)! It wasn't because they decided to remove only the so called "last two" Color Plates, and only those two, from the Second Printing. It clearly corrected the Original error that the turn-of the-century dealers and buyers must have vehemently brought to the Publisher's attention!! Their "Looking Glass" books were "missing" the last 2 Color Plates, as listed! Needless to say, in order to not lose credibility, they needed to IMMEDIATELY correct the problem. THUS THE SECOND PRINTING/EDITION/VERSION (You choose the term) was born. 2. The second problem (and I don't claim to know the reasons) was that Wessels took over the publication from Mansfield at the same time!! So what to do?? Wessels could not simply publish the same exact book with the one correction of the number of Plates in one of the two books.He did not own the Dual copyright; and, even if he could use the very same books with only a corrected Title page, Dealers and buyers might be confused by both changes - the number of Plates listed, and the Publisher's name. Thus, the Changed Cover Cloth from Gray to Dark Yellow was born! And, to further eliminate any confusion over the number 12, THEY REPLACED THE NUMBER IN THE 1900 ALICE WITH "MANY" (There are still ALL 12)! _____________________________.
