Item 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.

Item Description: Printed by R. Clay and Son for Macmillan and Co. -72, 1866. FIRST EDITIONS, 2 vols., ownership inscription dated 1870 to half-title of first vol., bookplate, occasional soiling, occasional short tears, pp. [xii (including half-title and frontispiece)], 192; [xii (including half-title and frontispiece)], 224, 3, 8vo, original cloth gilt, gilt edges, both vols. rebacked preserving the original spines, the first vol. in a slip-in case, sound. 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 # 55687

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872, 1872. 2 works, octavo (187 x 117; 177 x 117 mm). Late 20th century red full calf by Bayntun, spines emblematically tooled in gilt, twin green morocco labels, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt stamps of the White Rabbit and Red Queen, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, original cloth covers and spines bound-in. Housed in a fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. Early presentation inscription on half-title of Wonderland (dated "Xmas 1865"). A few light marks to bindings. Illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel. First published editions, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass (with the misspelling of "wabe" on p. 21). Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies of Wonderland was recalled by Dodgson, due to what either he, or Tenniel, felt to be the unsatisfactory reproduction of Tenniel's illustrations; "it has been questioned whether the first edition [of 1865] was ever published, in the strict sense of being on sale to the public and sent to the copyright libraries. Assuming that only a strict 2,000 copies were printed at the Clarendson Press, Dodgson seems to have regained all but 10 copies" (Williams, Madan & Green). For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865, although dated "1866". It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. A handsomely bound set. Williams, Madan & Green 46 & 84. Bookseller Inventory # 106088

Item 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, a touch 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.

Item 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

Publisher's fall-down-back box of brown straight-grain quarter morocco, cloth sides, leather-and-horn ties, portfolio of letterpress and illustrations loose in brown cloth chemise. Complete with shipping carton. Fine condition, with the original shipping carton intact. Etching printed in sepia, green and black, plates in colour. First Dalí edition, no. 2050 of 2500 printed on Mandeure paper, and signed on the title page by Dalí. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations – one for each chapter – for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28).

Item Description: 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).

Item Description: D. Appleton and Co, New York, 1866. Tenniel, John (illustrator). 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

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866., 1866. 8vo. Pps. 192. Bound in red cloth, gilt, with powder blue endpapers, all edge gilt, housed in leather collectors box. Neat owner name to margin of title-page with ink faded to a soft yellow (now barely visible). Contents and binding are particularly fresh; a curious copy, originally purchased at auction where it achieved a considerable sum as a fine copy. Upon close inspection however we now believe this copy has been expertly bound in the first part of the twentieth century, using the same red cloth and binder's brasses which are virtually identical to the original design; in addition the correct powder-blue endpapers are employed. The leather box is likely from the 20's or 30's, and was conceivably made when this binding was first executed. A striking copy of a landmark title. FIRST PUBLISHED EDITION of 'Alice in Wonderland.' Lewis Carroll disliked the edition published in 1865 so much that he had them all recalled and shipped out to the U.S.A. where the title pages were removed and new American ones inserted. Carroll's annoyance was with the typography and general look of the book. The illustrator, Tenniel, also complained that his illustrations were not being done justice. It is estimated that no more than 20 of these 1865 issues escaped. They are mostly now held in institutional collections. The new sheets were issued in the UK the following year. It is uncertain whether the edition comprised two thousand of four thousand copies. Williams, Nadan, Green [46]. Bookseller Inventory # 45554

Item 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.

Item Description: Limited Editions Club 1932 & 1935, New York, 1932. Hardcover. John Tenniel (illustrator). Two volumes in original full blue morocco and original full red morocco leather bindings with heavy gilt decorations. Each is copy #509 of 1500 copies with the original John Tenniel illustrations and with typography and binding by Frederick Warde who has SIGNED the first volume. Each copy is additionally SIGNED by Alice Hargreaves, "the original Alice." Only about 500 copies of the first title and about 1000 of the second were signed by her a few years before her death. Alice refused to sign other editions of this famous book in her lifetime, written by Carroll for her when she was young Alice Liddell, but she was convinced with the help of monetary compensation at an advanced age to sign these copies. Monthly Letter for ALICE'S ADVENTURES laid in. Many have praised these books, but perhaps novelist Sir Walter Besant's remark on ALICE IN WONDERLAND is the most insightful: "It admits us into a state of being which, until it was written, was not only unexplored but undiscovered." Very mild sunning to the spine of the Wonderland book. Fine, bright copies in Fine slipcases. Exceptional condition. Bookseller Inventory # 017613

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866., 1866. Red cloth, decorated in gilt, a.e.g. Frontis and illustrations by John Tenniel. Cloth handsoiled and rubbed, spine extremities frayed, hinges cracked (and with signs of having been recased, with light blue endsheets and the Burn ticket intact), endsheets foxed, scattered foxing and a few finger smudges elsewhere in the text, a few shallow ink bleeds along top and fore-margins of first few leaves, with evidence of same along upper edge of front cover, a few tiny repairs to fore-margins of two leaves (pp.91- 4), a few spots to upper fore-quadrant of lower cover; overall, a heavily read but good, intact copy. Cloth slipcase and chemise. Second British edition, but first published printing. As is common knowledge, Tenniel and Dodgson disliked the reproduction of the drawings in the first printing, and but for a handful of bound copies, the remaining 1952 sets of sheets from the first printing were diverted for use as the American edition via cancel prelims. This second (but first published) impression is essentially the first readily procurable English impression. WILLIAMS & MADAN 33. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 68874
