Book Description: Macmillan and Co, London, 1866. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. [Richard Clay for] Macmillan and Co., 1866. Octavo. Original red cloth, gilt-stamped, spine gilt-lettered, edges gilt. Electrotyped frontispiece, and 42 illustrations from the woodcuts by Dalziel after John Tenniel. First published edition, in the earliest state with pale blue endpapers (rather than the more usual dark green), with inverted "S" in the last line of contents page. Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenner) 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 re-set 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. The unused sheets of the 1865 Alice went to Appleton's for use in the first American edition, published in May 1866. Williams-Madan-Green-Crutch 46. Very good condition with some foxing sporadically throughout book, previous owner's handwritten name on front free end paper, book very slightly leaning, small sticker by binder on rear paste-down. Comes in a custom-made fold-out case. Bookseller Inventory # 1310411

Book 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.

Book Description: Macmillan, 1890. PRESENTATION COPY, SECOND (FIRST PUBLISHED) EDITION, first issue, 20 colour illustrations, a little light finger-soiling in places, pp. [xii], 56, [8], 4to, original cloth-backed pictorial glazed paper boards, atouch of professional repair to backstrip, light scratching and soiling overall, corners worn, good The author has inscribed (in characteristic purple ink) to the half-title, ‘For Nina, from the Author. Mar. 25, 1890’.As with the original ‘Alice in Wonderland’, the first set of sheets Macmillan printed of this adapted edition for children were rejected, and a number of them later found their way to America with a new title page. After an adjustment of the colouring and a second print run, which Carroll approved (calling the sheets "a great success"), it was published around Easter 1890, with 100 presentation copies - of which this is one - being inscribed on March 25th.

Book Description: Macmillan and Co., London, 1866. John Tenniel (illustrator). First Published Edition, following the 1865 Edition that was suppressed by the author and of which only a handful of copies survive, mostly in institutions. Small octavo. [12], 192 pp. Original red gilt-stamped cloth. All edges gilt. Complete with the original dark green coated endpapers and the original Binder's ticket on the rear pastedown. The book has been rebacked, I believe, but with no loss to the cloth and so expertly as to be nearly undetectable. There is some overall soiling and some scattered spots of bubbling to the cloth, and the gilt is somewhat dulled in places. The tips of a couple of corners are worn through but there is only the most minimal wear elsewhere. A very good copy of this landmark of Children's Literature. Internally the book is quite clean, as well, with none of the tears and finger smudging that one typically encounters. The enduring popularity of this title among both children and adults has resulted in most copies of the book being read to death and it is nowadays most commonly found rebound. Book.

The spine has raised bands in 6 compartments with a gold flower design, all edges gilt, gilt dentelles, a Fine copy. First published edition, with 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. The publishing history of this title is now well known. Because Carroll was unhappy with the original printing of "Alice" he recalled all copies to destroy them. It was re-set by Clay and released in Novmber of 1865 with the 1866 date on the title page. Only a very few copies of this first recalled issue are known to exist. The remainder of the unacceptable first issue sheets were sent to New York and bound by Appleton with a new title page. TIPPED-IN TO THIS COPY IS A QUIRKY 2-SIDED LETTER BY CARROLL USING HIS CHARACTERISTIC PURPLE INK! Dated Feb. 8. 1888 it reads: Dear Steward, I am much obliged for the estimates for the electric bell, and shall be quite willing to bear my share of the expense, under any of the arrangements named, I should want a 'push' in each of my 2 bedrooms - Hadland thought that (as both rooms look out North) the best way to reach them would be to continue the roof cord, & bring it down outside and in at the windows: however, you can arrange it as you think best. Please not to charge further Quarterage, for C.R., to Mr. S. W. Worthington. Very Truly Yours, C. L. Dodgson.". Bookseller Inventory # 35168

Cobb at head of title in vol. ii, minimal wear to foot of spines, cloth slip-in case, very good With the inverted S in the final line of the Contents in the first vol., which is thought to be a feature of the earliest state of the edition, and the incorrect reading ‘wade’ on p. 21 of the second vol., which certainly does indicate first issue. Strictly speaking, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ is the Second (First published) Edition, following the cancellation of the Clarendon Press printing at the behest of Tenniel, backed up by Dodgson. This edition was re-set by Clay, and although dated 1866 on the title was published for the Christmas market in 1865 - as evidenced here by the inscription on an original end-paper. Likewise, ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ appeared at the end of 1871. (Williams [Crutch] 46 and 84). Bookseller Inventory # 54160

Book Description: Macmillan, 1866. First published UK edition. Finely bound by Chelsea Bindery in full red morocco with vignette of Alice holding the pig to upper cover and the Cheshire Cat to rear; raised bands on the spine and gilt titles. All edges gilt and olive endpapers. Pages 17 - 24 misbound after page 32. A beautiful copy of this most important piece of children's literature. Illustrations in black and white by John Tenniel. This classic story was thought up by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseudonym Lewis Carroll) on a summer's day on the river Isis near Oxford. During the day on the river with friends he told the tale of Wonderland to 3 little girls from the Liddell family. Later Alice Liddell begged Dodgson to write the story down for her. He did this and added a few of his own illustrations. Before giving the book to Alice, Dodgson showed the book to several friends, including fantasy writer George MacDonald, who encouraged him to have the book published. In order to get the tale ready for publication it was enlarged and punch illustrator, John Tenniel, was commissioned to do the drawings. Macmillan then printed around 2000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and insisted it was reprinted before being published. Using a different printer this 1866 version is the first published edition. It has gone on to be considered one of the finest children's books ever written. Bookseller Inventory # 21699

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. Housed in a early custom box, which shows some wear. 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).

Book Description: Appleton ,, New York:, 1866. First edition, second issue. Original red cloth, gilt, gilt edges. This first printing was produced by the Clarendon Press at Dodgson's expense, and it was intended for Macmillan to publish in 1865, however the artist Tenniel reportedly complained about the printing quality of his illustrations and Dodgson ordered the entire printing withdrawn. Only some 20 copies of the first issue, with the original 1865 title page, are known to have survived. Dodgson ordered a new edition, printed by Richard Clay, and Macmillan sold the sheets of the approximately 2000 remaining copies to Appleton, with new title pages, for publication in America. This, thus, is the earliest printing in its only obtainable form. The Frank J. Hogan - Charles J. Rosenbloom with their bookplates. Christmas 1866 gift inscription. Ends of spine frayed, corners a trifle worn, spine gilt a bit rubbed, very good condition, with some fraying at the ends of the spine. First edition, second issue. Bookseller Inventory # 28710

Book Description: New York D. Appleton and Co. 1866, 1866. Octavo. (v)ff., 192pp. First edition, second issue. With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel. Carroll’s enduring tale of a child’s dreamworld was first issued in 1865 by Macmillan and Company of London, but Carroll and Tenniel were unhappy with the print quality of the illustrations and canceled the issue, insisting that the book be reprinted. Few copies of that first issue were ever released; fewer still are known to exist today. Many of the sheets had yet to be bound when Carroll suppressed the edition, and a number of these unbound sheets had been sold to Carroll’s American publisher, Appleton, who added its own title page. Thus, the first American edition is comprised of the sheets from the suppressed London edition. Subsequently, Macmillan issued its second edition of Alice with re-set type and reprinted illustrations. Alice was an immediate sensation. Copies of the book were avidly read by their young owners and tend to show some wear as a result. This copy bound by Rivière in full red calf with triple gilt rules on both covers, gilt dentelles, and marbled endpapers. Spine richly gilt in six compartments, with leather labels in two compartments, lettered in gilt. Original endpapers and red cloth binding bound-in following the text. Rear board faintly scuffed, spine lightly rubbed in spots. Pages show occasional light finger smudges and a few professionally repaired marginal tears; very faint owner’s inscription. A.e.g. (Ray English 185A; Carroll Handbook [1979] 44; Williams 9; see Printing and the Mind of Man 354). Bookseller Inventory # 21409
