About this Item: New York: D. Appleton, 1866, 1866. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, second (i.e., American) issue, comprising sheets of the suppressed 1865 printing of Alice with new title-page. 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. Original red cloth. Spine very slightly darkened, very minor wear to spine ends, small spot on back cover, hinges tender. A handsome copy. Half morocco case. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the most frequently quoted book in the world, after the Bible and the works of Shakespeare. Alice has been translated into more than 150 languages and gone through many hundreds of editions and countless stage and screen adaptations. “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its hardly less famous sequel Through the Looking Glass (1872), although ostensibly written for children are unique among ‘juveniles’ in appealing equally if not more strongly to adults. Written by an Oxford don, a clergyman, and a professional mathematician, they abound in characters—the White Knight, the Red Queen, the Mad Hatter, Humpty Dumpty—who are part of everybody’s mental furniture. And the philosophic profundity of scores, if not hundreds, of these characters’ observations, long household words wherever English is spoken, gains mightily from the delicious fantasy of their setting” (PMM). On July 4, 1862, the Rev. Charles Dodgson (“Lewis Carroll”) first told the story of Alice while on a river expedition with a fellow Oxford don and the three Liddell sisters, Alice, Edith, and Lorinda. The story’s namesake, Alice, asked for a written version of the tale, and Dodgson gave it to her for Christmas 1864. On seeing that manuscript, “Alice’s Adventures Underground,” friends encouraged him to expand the story into a book. In a letter to a friend Dodgson joked that the title might be taken to mean “instruction about mines,” and suggested the alternatives “Alice among the elves/goblins” or “Alice’s hour/doings/adventures in elf-land/wonderland.” “This second issue comprises those copies of the first edition still unbound when Lewis Carroll decided in July 1865 to cancel the edition. In 1866 the copies on hand were sold to Appleton and [1000] new title-pages were printed at Oxford, replacing the originals. The binding was evidently done in England, duplicating that for the first issue except in the substitution of Appleton’s name for Macmillan at the foot of the spine and in the omission of a binder’s ticket. Textually the Appleton issue agrees with the Macmillan 1865, the only difference being the cancel title-page” (Robert N. Taylor, Lewis Carroll at Texas: The Warren Weaver Collection). This is a very handsome copy of a beloved and much-read book, far superior to the worn and repaired copies usually encountered. Seller Inventory # ABE-1508876266865

About this Item: New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1866, 1866. The First 'Obtainable' Edition ofAlice's Adventures in WonderlandCARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. New York: D. Appleton, 1866. First New York edition, from the sheets of the true first English (suppressed) edition of 1865 and preceding the 1866 (second)English edition; to wit: the second issue of the first edition-first printing, and the first obtainable edition. Small quarto. x, 192 pp.Publisher's red cloth with gilt vignettes within triple gilt borders on upper and lower boards. Spine decoratively lettered in gilt, dark blue coated end-papers, all edges gilt. A few very minor stains on half-title, verso of frontispiece and tissue guard. Some very small chips to spine extremities, small, one half inch area of wear (through the cloth) on rear joint, minimal rubbing to lower corners, some very minor staining to covers, still one of the best copies that we have seen - entirely untouched, the inner hinges absolutely sound. Chemised within a quarter red morocco clamshell case.This is one of the 1,952 sets of sheets of the original suppressed 1865 print run, that were sent to Appleton in New York for machine-folding and binding-up with a substituted New York title-page. The last example of the original 48 copies (see detailed note below) of the 1865 Alice to appear at auction was the Montagu-Rosenbach-Johnson-Kettaneh-Schiller copy. That copy was rebound in Morocco by Rivière for L.S. Montagu and had with it ten of the original drawings by John Tenniel. It fetched $1.4 million at Christie's New York in December 1998.It is extremely unusual to find a copy of this book that has never been touched, repaired or strengthened in some way. In over fifty years I cannot recall seeing more than a handful of 'untouched' copies - this is actually an 1865 Alice but with a New York title-page (DJB)."The first edition, familiarly known to book-collectors as 'the 1865 Alice', was printed at the Oxford University Press. This edition was at the last moment cancelled by the author, for whom Macmillan's were publishing 'on commission' (i.e. as agent, not sponsors) because of what was considered the poor printing of Sir John Tenniel's almost equally famous illustrations. The few early copies sent out were recalled; seemingly with fair success, since less than a score are known to survive today. The book was then reprinted, by Clay, with the title-page re-dated 1866, and this constitutes the first regularly published edition. Dodgson thriftily sold 500 copies of the suppressed 1865 printing for publication, with suitably altered title-page, by Appleton's of New York in 1866" (Printing and the Mind of Man)."On the suppression of the first (1865) edition, Messrs. Macmillan were left with a number of unbound sheets on their hands. These, one would have thought, would have been destroyed, but, from motives of economy perhaps, or may be because the defects in the illustrations were only apparent to the author, they were not destroyed?It is known that these sheets were sold to Messrs. Appleton of New York ?[who] removed the Macmillan title page and substituted one with their own imprint, had the sheets bound in London, probably in the covers intended for the original edition, and then issued them in New York?the suppressed edition of 1865 and that issued by Appleton in New York in 1866 are identical" (Williams)."At first it was agreed to sell the condemned printing as waste-paper, but eventually there came an opportunity for the original unbound sheets to be sold off to an overseas publishing house who had requested to buy up two thousand copies for distribution in America. Both Tenniel and Dodgson gave their consent to this proposal, and thus 1,952 copies (of the original 2,000 copy print run) were sold to the firm David Appleton & Co.; the title pages were redone with a New York imprint dated 1866, the sheets were machine-folded and put into cloth bindings with Appleton's name on the lower spine.

About this Item: New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1866. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Tenniel, John (illustrator). 1st Edition. First edition, second and earliest obtainable issue, with variant A page [5] with "Alice! A childish ", variant A page [6] with "Rabbit Hole," variant A title page with the 'b' in 'bye' directly above and somewhat to the right of the 'T' in 'Tenniel.' Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice to the front board in gilt, illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear board in gilt, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some toning and dimming to the spine, discreet repairs to the spine ends, light soiling to the boards, corners lightly rubbed and bumped, spine cracked and holding inside the front cover, Mission ownership stamp the front pastedown, one or two faint spots to the otherwise very clean pages. A very square and attractive copy, very scarce in the original cloth. Housed in a custom folding box. Taylor 2. 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. Macmillan sold its remaining pages to Appleton in New York, who bound this second issue with a cancel title page. Aside from the new title, the Appleton Alice agree with all textual issues of the 1865 Alice, including the slight variants on page [5] and [6], which neither indicate collecting priority nor earlier printing. Similarly, the slightly different Appleton title pages are the result of the book being "printed in pairs from two nominally identical settings of type." Only a handful of the true first issue survived (many were donated to children's hospitals), making this second issue the first obtainable issue. 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. Seller Inventory # LC110

About this Item: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872, 1872. 2 works, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt, triple gilt fillets to covers with gilt vignette centrepieces, blue endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a custom red half-morocco bookform box with red cloth sides, spine lettered in gilt. Adventures in Wonderland lightly rolled, spine darkened, loss at head of spine repaired with the "A" of "Alice" and part of first three letters of "Adventures" relettered, front hinge cracked, a little shaken, some light foxing to contents with a few page corners lightly creased, short closed tear at foot of p. 91. Through the Looking-Glass lightly rolled, extremities a little rubbed, a few markings to cloth, rear hinge split and front hinge starting, very minor foxing to initial and final leaves. Box a little rubbed. Overall a very good set. Frontispieces and 90 illustrations by John Tenniel. First published editions. The copies of the novelist Richard Adams, with his bookplate to the front free endpapers. Adams uses a quotation from Through the Looking Glass, alongside a quotation from Shakespeare, as the heading of the Epilogue to Watership Down: "He was part of my dream, of course – but then I was part of his dream, too." Adams drew parallels between his own and Carroll's works, due to his annoyance at the debate over the intended readership age of Watership Down. Adams stated that a work of fiction should be "first and foremost, a work of artistic integrity, by its subjects and merits appealing to readers of all ages, including children", going on to say that "the two 'Alice' books probably head the list here, with 'The Wind in the Willows' in honourably high place" (Adams, in Blishen, p. 163). Adams used the revenues from his highly successful novels to develop a substantial book collection, including many high spots of English literature. For these copies, 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 Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. 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.

About this Item: London: (Richard Clay for) Macmillan and Co., 1866, 1866. Octavo (183 × 123 mm). Bound by Bayntun (Riviere) in recent red crushed morocco, title to spine and motifs to compartments gilt, multicoloured morocco onlay of Alice and the Dodo to front cover, turn-ins and edges gilt, pale purple silk doublures, original cloth bound in at rear. Odd spot of faint foxing to contents; an excellent copy, handsomely bound. Frontispiece and 41 illustrations by John Tenniel. Second (first published) edition, with the inverted "S" in the final line of the contents listing which is thought to be a feature of the earliest state of the edition. The publication of the first Alice book set a pattern for many of Dodgson's succeeding publications. The book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865. On 19 July 1865, Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator John Tenniel was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing, so decided to suppress the whole edition of 2,000 copies. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market. The unused Oxford sheets were sold to Appleton's for use in their New York edition, published the following summer. The Macmillan edition was published in an edition of 4,000 copies.

About this Item: 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).

About this Item: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866, 1866. The First Published Edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," Finely Bound by Bayntun (Rivière)CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 [i.e., November 1865].Second (first published) edition. Small octavo (7 1/4 x 4 11/16 inches; 185 x 119 mm.). [12], 192 pp. Wood engraved frontispiece with original tissue-guard, numerous wood-engraved text illustrations. A few very light marginal smudges, otherwise fine.Handsomely bound ca. 1960, in full red morocco by Bayntun (Rivière), stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in. Covers with single gilt line border, front cover with gilt stamped 'Mad Hatter', spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board edges, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. Original gilt decorated cloth covers and spine bound in at end. A fine copy. "The first edition, familiarly known to book-collectors as 'the 1865 Alice', was printed at the Oxford University Press. This edition was at the last moment cancelled by the author, for whom Macmillan's were publishing 'on commission' (i.e. as agent, not sponsors) because of what was considered the poor printing of Sir John Tenniel's almost equally famous illustrations. The few early copies sent out were recalled; seemingly with fair success, since less than a score are known to survive today. The book was then reprinted, by Clay, with the title-page re-dated 1866, and this constitutes the first regularly published edition. Dodgson thriftily sold 500 copies of the suppressed 1865 printing for publication, with suitably altered title-page, by Appleton's of New York in 1866" (Printing and the Mind of Man)."Though dated 1866, this edition was actually published in time for Christmas 1865" (Lovett and Lovett) and therefore preceded the publication of Appleton's New York edition by six months.Lovett and Lovett 3. Printing and the Mind of Man 354 (the 1865 first issue). Williams, Madan, and Green 46. Seller Inventory # 04365

About this Item: London: William Heinemann, & New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1907. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Rackham, Arthur (illustrator). First Edition. First trade edition. Original green gilt pictorial cloth with Gryphon and Mock-Turtle to front board. Signed by Rackham with an original pen and ink drawing of a winged Gryphon and dated 23.3.08 on the half-title page. A very good copy with some rubbing and light wear to the extremities. The deluxe limited issue of Rackham's "Alice" was not signed by Rackham because he was traveling at the time of the book's publication. Housed in a gilt-decorated custom brown half-morocco fleece-lined folding box. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for one of his favorite child friends, Alice Liddell, who was also a frequent subject of Dodgson's portrait photography. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a prolific British artist and illustrator, best known for his deluxe editions of popular children's books. Artistically inclined since childhood, Rackham started out illustrating for newspapers, but it was not until he began drawing for children's literature that he received critical acclaim. In response to his burgeoning fame, Rackham's publisher, William Heinemann, began producing deluxe and trade editions of his illustrated works, the first being Rip Van Winkle in 1905. Deluxe editions were produced in a limited edition of numbered copies (ranging in quantity from 250 - 2,020), bound in vellum bindings, printed on handmade paper, and signed by the illustrator. The trade editions were published concurrently in simple bindings, on thinner paper, and with fewer color plates. This publication strategy benefited both publisher and artist; Rackham produced about one book per year and would have an annual gallery exhibition showing his original artwork for his latest book. The recipient of multiple awards for illustrations, Rackham was a diverse artist with a talent for both the fantastical and the intricacies of human nature, as demonstrated in his famous illustrations for Peter Pan. Signed by Illustrator. Seller Inventory # LC008

About this Item: London Macmillian 1866, 1866. First published edition. The reset edition printed by Richard Clay following the edition printed by Clarendon, the latter having been suppressed by Dodgson after he heard that the illustrator, Tenniel was unhappy with the quality of the printing. Bound by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath, in full green morocco with simple gilt titles and raised bands to the spine. Externally clean. The text block has been conserved, with repairs to page edges and closed tears, also three leaves of text replaced sympathetically in facsimile(pages 63/64, 75/76 and 77/78). The edges of the text block have been left as they were and present well, whilst making the work carried out clearly visible. Otherwise it is slightly foxed, with stains to some pages and a faded signature to the half-title page. An undoubted high-spot of English literature, adding many new phrases to the language, filmed and staged numerous times, used as a standard against which successive generations of illustrators have tested themselves and endlessly parodied, but this is the form in which people first enjoyed it(well, almost, if you ignore the scars inflicted on the book during its 152 years of existence!) and thus rather special.

Old ownership signature on half-title of Adventures and title page of Looking Glass. This First American edition of Wonderland used the rejected sheets of the original 1865 London edition and is therefore tantamount to buying the incredibly rare (suppressed) 1865 London Alice except for a different title page. We're throwing in an old creepy doll and the White Rabbit's actual pocket watch (just kidding) to complete the Victorian feel. Digital images available upon request. Seller Inventory # 0084086
