About this Item: Macmillan and Co 1889 & 1893, London, 1889. Hardcover. 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. Seller Inventory # 24395

About this Item: London, Macmillan and Co., 1889 (1889)., 1889. Fine copy ! 4°. 6 Bl. mit Frontispiz, 56 Seiten, 4 Bl. Mit zahlreichen teils blattgroßen farbigen Illustrationen. OHalbleinen mit farbiger Deckelillustration. Die angegebenen Versandkosten gelten für Bücher bis 1000 Gramm. Bücher über 1000 Gramm kosten nach Deutschland EUR 4,50. Erste Ausgabe im 4. Druck. - Kanten gering berieben, Deckel leicht fleckig. Insgesamt schönes Exemplar. - Original cloth-backed glazed pictorial boards, with delightful cover illustration signed E. Gertrud Thomson and illustrations throughout by Tenniel, here enlarged and now coloured in subtle and very pretty hues; an exceptionally attractive copy of a volume which appears in a well-read state; slight darkening to boards, edges and corners a touch rubbed, spine clean and internally immaculate. First edition, fourth printing. The nursery version of this classic story was conceived by Carroll to be "read, to be cooed over, to be dogs' eared, to be rumpled, to be kissed" by children from nought to five. Thus he rewrote it in a simpler amd abbreviated format of 16 chapters. As with so many Lewis Carroll's works, "The Nursery Alice" has a complicated bibliographical history. It has now been ascertained that the first edition of 10 000 was withdrawn and deemed unsatisfactory due to over-bright colour printing. 500 of this edition were bound and sent to America where they were rejected as not being bright enough! The edition was reprinted, with Carroll finally accepting and edition in October 1889. There are several variants bearing the date 1889. Madan records the first issue as having "Peoples Edition Price Two Shillings" on the title, however his own copy corresponds almost exactly to our own, except that our copy has an illustration of the March Hare on the lower board. Carroll rejected this issue in September 1889, as the "hare" was not printed in the centre of the board. Williams, Madan and Green, p. 147. Seller Inventory # 1685AB

About this Item: Macmillan and Co, London, 1893. Furniss, Harry (illustrator). Two octavo volumes. xxiii, 400pp., + 3pp. advertisements; xxxi, 423 pp., + 5 pp. advertisements. First editions. Each volume inscribed to "Mrs. Morgan" by the author on the half-title, the first volume bearing Carroll's handwritten date of December 12. Apparently, this is the same copy of Sylvie and Bruno mentioned in The Lewis Carroll Handbook by Williams, Madan, and Green. Carroll was still correcting page proofs of the book in November of 1889, "but a presentation copy is known which was dispatched on 12 Dec. in that year," according to the authors. In the companion volume, Carroll dates the inscription to Morgan December 27, two days prior to the book's official release, indicating a second presentation copy and a significant association with Morgan. Each volume contains 46 black and white illustrations by Harry Furniss, who in discussing his relationship with Carroll once mused, "I was willful and erratic, bordering on insanity. We therefore got along splendidly." Bound by Riviere and Son in full red morocco, with gilt-rule border to both boards, gilt decorative device at corners of turn-ins, and marbled endpapers. Spine in six compartments, gilt lettered. Original bindings of full red cloth bound in, each cover bearing a small gilt illustration of one of the characters from the book within a circular border. Both volumes very fine. A.e.g. (Williams, Madan & Green 217, 250). Seller Inventory # 21776

About this Item: London: Macmillan & Co., 1877. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Tenniel, John (illustrator). Illustrated by John Tenniel. People's edition. Inscribed by Carroll to his child friend on the half title: "Marie Louise Butterfield, / from the author /May 26, 1896". Publisher's green cloth, with an illustration of Alice and Humpty Dumpty to the front board in red and black. Very good, with a slight lean and some toning to the spine, minor rubbing to the extremities, faint soiling to the otherwise fresh boards, light offsetting to the endpapers, a few illustrations hand colored with crayon, otherwise clean pages. A very sturdy and presentable copy, signed and inscribed by the author. Carroll inscribed this book to Marie-Louise Roosevelt Pierrepont (née Butterfield), noted artist and the 6th Countess Manvers and one of Lewis Carroll's child friends. Marie-Louise moved to Oxford at the age of six, and she met Carroll shortly thereafter. Indeed, he wrote in his diary on May 14, 1895, noting that he met a young girl named Marie Louise and that he gave her a copy of Alice's Adventures Underground. He later gave her this copy of Through the Looking-Glass at a friend's birthday party in 1896 when Marie-Louise was only seven years old - the same age as Alice Liddell when she inspired Carroll to write the Alice series. Through the Looking-Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Inscribed by Author.

About this Item: London: Macmillan and Co., 1891. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Tenniel, John (illustrator). Illustrated by John Tenniel. Later printing (Eighty-Fifth Thousand). Signed by Tenniel on the title page. Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice holding a pig to the front board, with an illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear panel, lettered in gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some light toning to the spine, minor soiling to the boards, bright gilt, spine lightly starting inside the front cover, otherwise sturdy binding, bright and clean pages. Overall, a tight and attractive copy, extremely scarce with Tenniel's signature. Housed in a custom slipcase with matching chemise. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes a black and white frontispiece along with forty-two in-text illustrations by John Tenniel, Dodgson's frequent artist collaborator, with whom he had a somewhat volatile relationship due to their mutual perfectionism. Indeed, the true first issue of Alice was published by Macmillan in London in a print run of 2,000 copies, but was quickly suppressed because neither author nor artist approved of the quality of the reproductive illustrations.

About this Item: MacMillan and Co, London, 1887. First trade edition. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth. Presentation copy, 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. 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. Seller Inventory # 26048

About this Item: London, Macmillan, 1889 & London, Macmillan, 1893., 1893. Hardcover. 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.".

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 98292
