Item Description: Macmillan and Co 1889 & 1893, London, 1889. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Harry Furniss (illustrator). Harry Furniss. Hardcover. Two volume set in box. First Editions. Includes a laid in scarce advertisement from Carroll about the poor quality of the 60th thousand issue of Through the Looking Glass. Each volume contains 46 illustrations by Harry Furniss. This is a charming story set in Victorian England with two main plots; one is set in the real world and the other is set in a fantasy world. Both volumes are bound in the original red cloth with gilt titles to the spines, gilt rules to the edges of the boards, and gilt devices to the boards. Both volumes have full edges gilt and black endpages. The spine of the first volume is browned with chips and minor fraying to the spine ends. There are a few light spots of soiling, a few scuff marks, and a small bump to the covers of this volume as well. Both hinges are starting, the spine is lightly rolled, there is minor foxing to the last few pages, and a previous owner has inscribed the half title page in pen dated from the late nineteenth century. The second volume is noticeably brighter and cleaner than the first - probably due to the remnants of the original jacket which still protect it. It is lightly browned along the head of the spine and has some rubbing / light wear on the spine. The covers are bright and clean with a few small bubbles under the bookcloth. The title page and frontis are browned due to the tissue guard, but otherwise the interior is very clean with a tight binding. This volume does have the front and rear panels of the original jacket along with a portion of the spine. The jacket which was originally blue has browned considerably. The spine portion of the jacket which had the title is no longer present; however, the original price sticker of "8/6 Net" is still adhered to the bottom edge of the spine panel. Both volumes are housed in a red cloth box. The box is worn along the edges and the bottom joint is beginning to split. Volume 1 has 400 pages plus 4 pages of ads and Volume 2 has 423 pages plus 5 pages of ads. CHILD/121710. Bookseller Inventory # 24395

Item Description: London, Macmillan, 1889 & London, Macmillan, 1893., 1893. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First editions. 8vo. Frontispiece and forty five illustrations by Harry Furniss; 5 pages of publisher's advertisements at end. Full gilt stamped red morocco by Scroll Club, spines with raised bands, gilt ruled edges, gilt ruled inner dentelles, a.e.g. (with original cloth bound in). Very good-fine. Later black cloth slipcase. Both signed and inscribed by Carroll on half-title pages to Alice Wilson Fox. The first in purple ink; the second in black ink. "Sylvie and Bruno": "Alice Wilson Fox from her old friend the Author. Jan. 8, 1890." "Sylvie and Bruno Concluded": "Alice Wilson Fox, with the Author's affectionate regards. Dec. 27, 1893." Alice Raikes (later Mrs. Wilson-Fox) was the daughter of Lewis Carroll's cousin, and may have been the inspiration for Carroll's "Alice" character (see the entry in Lewis Carroll's diary for August 17, 1868, wherein Lewis records his visit with Alice Raikes and the further development of "Through the Looking Glass"). The editor, Roger L. Green, comments after this entry: "It was probably during this stay in the house at Onslow Square that a chance meeting with his little cousin Alice Raikes helped Dodgson to the additional realization of the peculiarities of 'Looking-Glass House,' which gave still greater verisimilitude to the new 'Wonderland' which he was then inventing for his own dream-child.".

Item Description: MacMillan and Co, London, 1887. First trade edition. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth. Inscribed by Lewis Carroll to his nephew, on the half-title in purple ink in the year of publication, "Bertram J. Collingwood with the Author's love Mar. 87." The volume contains the original envelope containing the playing board, with six of the nine rare counters. In very good condition with some rubbing to the extremities and a small repair to the spine. Uncommon signed and inscribed. "The native acuteness and ingenuity of [Carroll's] intellect led him to devote much attention to formal logic, in whose intricate puzzles he delighted, and he almost seemed to have convinced himself that it was an engine for the discovery of new truth, instead of a means of detecting error--that more could be got out of the premises than was put into them" (DNB). This first published edition was preceded only by an extremely small private printing in 1886 that Carroll suppressed. Bookseller Inventory # 26048

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1890, 1890. Small quarto. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles to spine gilt, pictorial onlay of the mad-hatter's tea party with oval surround gilt, inner dentelles gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. The occasional minor blemish, an excellent copy in a fine binding. Contains 20 coloured enlargements from Tenniel's illustrations to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". First published edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Maggie Bowman from the Author. Mar. 31 1890". Dodgson took charge of Maggie Bowman during her stay in Oxford to act in Bootle's Baby (9 to 13 June 1889), and commemorated this event in his poem "Maggie's Visit to Oxford". Her older sister, Isa Bowman, who at that time was one of Dodgson's "chiefest" child friends, played the part of Alice in the revival of Savile Clarke's dream play which opened at the Globe Theatre on 26 December 1888. In fact, this production introduced all five of the Bowman children to the stage, and the girls later became professional actresses. The first printing of this abridged version of Alice was discarded by Dodgson in much the same way as its 1865 predecessor. Five hundred copies were sent for issue in the USA but even these were apparently destroyed. This 1890 printing exists in at least three states, the present example being the earliest, with "Price Four Shillings" on the title page. Williams, Madan and Green 216. Bookseller Inventory # 98292
