    First published editions of both Alice books, presentation copies inscribed by the author to Margaret Evelyn Hardy, the daughter of Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy. She is recorded in Carroll's listing of recipients of presentation copies of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as noted in his diary. The inscriptions comprise "Margaret Evelyn Hardy from the Author" on the half-title of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and "Margaret Evelyn Hardy from the Author. Christmas 1871" on the half-title of Through the Looking-Glass. Gathorne-Hardy, 1st Earl of Cranbrook, (1814-1906) became known to Carroll's Oxford circle in 1865 when he was nominated to stand in the Oxford University constituency. There were three candidates: William Gladstone, William Heathcote and Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy. Carroll records signing a voting paper in his diary for 10 July and Jackson's Oxford Journal for 15 July notes that "Dr Dodson [sic], of Christ Church" voted for Gladstone. The final result was Heathcote 1331, Gathorne-Hardy 767, and Gladstone 735 votes. The election prompted Carroll to write his Dynamics of a Particle (1865) comprising a satirical pamphlet masquerading as a mathematical treatise in which chapter two refers to the contest between Gathorne-Hardy and Gladstone. The politician was responsible for Carroll's admittance to the public area of the House of Commons on 8 April 1867, and when Gathorne-Hardy visited Oriel College, Oxford, Carroll invited him to Christ Church to have his photograph taken. Carroll noted in his diary on 10 June 1867 "He had not long to spare, but I succeeded in taking two pictures of him, neither of them, I fear, particularly successful". On 24 June 1867 the politician wrote to Carroll stating "my little girl's names are Margaret Evelyn, and I am sure she would dearly treasure Alice in English and French, but has no right to tax you for both". Gathorne-Hardy had married Jane Orr in 1838 and they were to have four sons and five daughters. A correspondence between the two men commenced and Carroll continued to send copies of his books to Margaret: we know she received the 1869 German and French translations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and her inscribed copy of Through the Looking-Glass is dated Christmas 1871. She also received a copy of The Hunting of the Snark with an inscription dated 24 April 1876. The present set is unrecorded by Carlson and Eger. Carroll's diary entry for 12 September 1877 records a visit by the author to the Hardy family to "meet Evelyn again (she is now 'Miss Evelyn')" when he "walked on the Parade with Mrs. Hardy and Misses K. and E." Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the first published edition, the second overall: the book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865, but was suppressed when Carroll heard that John Tenniel, the book's illustrator, was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing. It was withdrawn before publication and now survives in tiny numbers. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for the present authorized Macmillan edition, the earliest edition that can be realistically obtained. Although dated 1866, the edition was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market, and was published in a print run of 4,000 copies. The copy of Through the Looking-Glass is the first edition; like its predecessor, it was published for the Christmas market and bears the following year's date in its imprint. It was actually published in December 1871, in an edition of 9,000 copies. Williams, Madan, Green, and Crutch 46, 84; Carlson and Eger, Dodgson at Auction 1893-1999, 1999; ed. Edward Wakeling, Lewis Carroll's Diaries, 1993-2007. 2 volumes, octavo (176 x 117 mm). Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, spines lettered and with motifs in gilt, raised bands, covers with pictorial roundels replicating the original binding design and single rule in gilt, elaborate turn-ins in gilt, gilt edges. Housed in a morocco entry slipcase. Illustrated frontispieces, with tissue guards, and illustrations to the text, all by John Tenniel. Occasional finger-soiling and foxing; near-fine and attractive copies.

Bound in full green morocco, ribbed gilt decorated spine, covers triple ruled in gilt, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt, original clothe covers and spine bound in rear, by Ringer & Hertzberg, hinges fine, head of spine renewed, internally clean and bright, overall VERY GOOD. Ernst Hertzberg was born in Gramzow, Germany in 1853. At age thirteen Ernst made a decision to leave Germany and move to Chicago, Illinois. It wasn't long before he used his apprenticeship talents to get a job at Ringer Bookbindery as a finisher. He progressed rapidly with his talent for designing and finishing fine bindings. In the next four or five years Ernst married and started a family of his own. He also became a partner in the Ringer Bindery, and it became known as the Ringer & Hertzberg Bindery. Ernst had five sons and two daughters. As the years went on, all of his sons and daughters worked at the bookbinding trade. Under their father's teaching, most learned the skills and craftsmanship of the bookbinding art. Ernst bought out his partner, who wanted to retire, and was able to establish a new bindery. He called it the Monastery Hill Bindery.

    Condition: Very good. John Tenniel (illustrator). Second (First Published) Edition. 192pp. Duodecimo [22 cm] rebound in gilt-stamped dark red morocco with raised spine bands. Binding pristine. Includes original pale blue free endpapers, now serving as flyleaves. Calligraphic ink name dated May 1st, 1866 on original front free endpaper, reinforcements to the edges of several leaves, light to moderate foxing throughout. With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel. The first published edition, re-set from a copy of the recalled first issue. Williams, Madan, Green 46. The publication of Carroll's work appeared at a time when children's literature was produced primarily to teach moral lessons. Carroll's tale was, by contrast, wonderfully fantastical and nonsensical, and the book baffled critics at first. By the close of the 19th century, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" had become the most popular children's books in England. Two decades later, the Alice story grew to be one of the most celebrated works of fiction in the English language throughout the world.

[i]; Illustrated with 37 illustrations by the Author. Red cloth, as issued, with gold lettering along the spine "Alice's Adventures Under Ground". The front cover has three gold lines around the border, and in the center of the cover Alice's Adventures Under Ground in manuscript letters. Back cover has three gold lines around the border, and three circular lines in the center containing a picture of the mock Turtle in profile. All edges gilt, black (first issue) end papers. Spine darkened and some soiling to edges, corners bumped; ex libris George Francis Lovell. Previous owners names penciled in on half-title (1923 and 1979) Half title: Alice's Adventures Under Ground; p. [ii], blank; p. [iii], Title "Alice's Adventures Under Ground / Being a facsimile of the Original MS. book afterwards developed into "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" / by Lewis Carroll / with thirty-seven illustrations by the author / Price Four Shilling ; p. [iv], Imprint: Richard Clay and Sons, London and Bungay. Dedication page reads "A Christmas Gift to a Dear Child in Memory of a Summer Day." The last 3 pages include "An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice." by Lewis Carol, Easter 1876, followed by a poem Dated Christmas 1869, "Christmas Greetings. [From a Fairy to a Child], a blank page with only "turn over" printed at the bottom, and a page of Macmillans' advertisement of Lewis Carrol's works. ** Contains a RARE LOOSE SHEET CIRCULAR, dated Christmas 1893, by the author ASKING FOR THE RETURN OF COPIES OF "THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS" . Some creasing and edgewear to the Circular. [Williams 1979, 194 & 249]. This is an exact replica of the first draft (1864) of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", in the Author's hand, and bearing 37 illustrations by him (14 are full page). The tale of Alice was first told to Miss Alice Liddell during a river expedition at Oxford in 1862 and Dodgson had promised her to write out the story and to include illustrations. There are about 12,715 words in this volume, as compared to over twice that in the fuller form which was published in 1865, with engraved illustrations by John Tenniel, who most probably saw the illustrations from Dodgson's manuscript and drew inspiration from them. This first and only edition of the facsimile was of 5000 copies, as evidenced in a letter from Dodgson to Macmillan on 21 Nov. 1886. (Williams 1979, p. 145) In regards to the CIRCULAR, Sidney Williams wrote, "It is an ordinary composition enough, but interesting on account of its rarity; also because it so finely illustrates the character of Lewis Carroll, his almost meticulous care and pride in his work and its production, as well as his generosity and thought for the poorer members of his public, who could not afford to buy his books." [Williams 1924, no.52 & no.68]. The CIRCULAR reads: "ADVERTISEMENT | For over 25 years, I have made it my chief object, with regard to my books, that they should be of the best workmanship attainable for the price. And I am deeply annoyed to find that the last issue of "Through the Looking-Glass," consisting of the Sixtieth Thousand, has been put on sale without its being noticed that most of the pictures have failed so much, in the printing, as to make the book not worth buying. I request all holders of copies to send them to Messrs. Macmillan & Co., 29 Bedford Street, Covent Garden, with their names and address, and copies of the next issue shall be sent them in exchange. | Instead, however, of destroying the unsold copies, I propose to utilise them by giving them away, to Mechanics' Institutes, Village Reading-Rooms, and similar institution, where the means for purchasing such books are scant. Accordingly I invite applications for such gifts, addressed to me, "Care of Messrs. Macmillan." Every such application should be signed by some responsible person, and should state how far they are able to buy books for themselves, and what is the average number of readers. | I take this opportunity of announcing that, if at any future time I should wish to communicate anything to my Readers, I will do so by advertising in the 'Agony' column of some of the Daily Papers, on the first Tuesday of the month. LEWIS CARROL | Christmas 1893" The circular is reproduced in the 1924 edition of Williams' bibliography, p. 124, and the title page of this reviled edition, stamped "Presented by the Author for the use of Mechanics' Reading Room, &c., Jan 1894" is reproduced in Williams 1979, p. 164.

    Soft cover. Condition: Fair. This is a first printing of a 'Macmillan Sixpenny Series' or 'people's edition.' Although the card title mentions only the 'Alice in Wonderland' book, this single volume also contains 'Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There,' which has fifty illustrations by John Tenniel. It is very fragile - (hence no internal photos of Tenniel's illustrations). Very tanned throughout. Card covers are scuffed and faded with a closed tear on the front one. The book is intact but the binding is not tight. A couple of small green ink scribbles (pen? crayon?) on the ffep. Nonetheless, it is an impressive book in many ways; including the iconic and ubiquitous artwork. AiW: pp. 126. AttLG: pp. 122 (paginated pages). 8vo. Please note that depending on destination we may request an additional payment to cover any extra shipping/postage charges. Abe2129.
