Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1886, 1886. Octavo. Publisher's presentation binding in blue morocco, titles and decorations to spine and boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in custom quarter blue morocco and cloth solander box. With the Duchess of Albany's bookplate on the front pastedown. Extremities a little rubbed, some very minor wear to tips, small split to head of front hinge; an excellent copy. With 37 illustrations by the author. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author in his customary purple ink on the half-title, "Presented to H.R.H. The Duchess of Albany, by the author, in grateful recollection of three happy days, and of two sweet children, Aug. 6, 1889." The duchess replied on 17 August, acknowledging the gift: "It gives me much pleasure as I am a great friend of Alice and her adventures. I must now also thank you for your letter to me and the two charming books with which you made my children very happy. I think they will well remember the kind gentleman who spent so much time with them in amusing them and telling them stories." Dodgson knew her late husband, Prince Leopold, Queen Victoria's fourth son, who matriculated at Oxford on 27 November 1872; he had his portrait taken at Dodgson's Tom Quad studio at Christ Church in 1875 and signed his name in Dodgson's album. For a brief period during his studies the prince was romantically linked with Alice Liddell, and, though nothing came of the romance, the two remained cordial. In 1883 Alice (by then Mrs Hargreaves) wrote to congratulate the prince on the birth of his first child, Alice, at the same time inviting him to be godfather to her second son, Leopold Reginald, also born that year. The following year the prince died of a brain haemorrhage, but it was not until June 1889 that Dodgson became acquainted with his widow, while staying Hatfield House as a guest of Lord Salisbury. The Duchess was accompanied by her two children, Alice, and Charles, Duke of Albany aged 6 and 5 respectively. Dodgson – perhaps influenced by the coincidence of the little girl's name – made gifts of several of his works, including the present example. Dodgson struck up a friendship with the children, and regularly sent them gifts of puzzles or presentation copies of his books. Princess Alice recalled their early friendship in her autobiography: "Doctor Dodgson or 'Lewis Carroll' was especially kind to Charlie and me, though when I was five I offended him once, when, at a children's party at Hatfield, he was telling story. He was a stammerer and being unable to follow what he was saying I suddenly asked in a loud voice, 'Why does he waggle his mouth like that?' I was hastily removed by the lady-in-waiting. Afterwards he wrote that he 'liked Charlie but thought Alice would turn out badly.' He soon forgot all this and gave us books for Christmas with anagrams of our names on the fly-leaf." This is one of a very few known copies in this unrecorded presentation binding. By a letter to Macmillan of 17 December 1886, Dodgson is known to have requested three special copies, one in white vellum (the ultimate copy, for Alice Liddell) and two in morocco (one for Alice's mother, the other untraceable), which were ready in time to be inscribed on Christmas Day.

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1886, 1886. Octavo. Original white paper-covered boards, spine rebacked with vellum, covers lettered and decorated in gilt, cream coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom green solander box. Covers a little rubbed and soiled, tips a little worn, superficial cracks to hinges but held firm by reback, contents clean; overall very good. With 37 illustrations by the author. First edition. Presentation copy in the rare presentation binding of gilt-stamped white boards in imitation of vellum, with Dodgson's presentation inscription in purple ink on the half-title: "Lily Falle, from the Author, Jan. 1887." Albina "Lily" Bertram (b. 1859) was the second daughter of Joshua G. Falle (1820–1903), a judge and magistrate of the Royal Court of Jersey. On Dodgson's visit to the island in 1884, he records his first meeting with Lily: "I had several pleasant hours with Judge Falle, his wife, and daughters; Rozel (now Mrs. Le Cornu) I had met in London with her father but the beautiful Albina ("Lily" they call her) I had never seen before." Dodgson first met Rozel Falle in early August 1869, at the United Hotel in London, and inscribed a copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for her on 7 August. It is Rozel's copy to which Dodgson refers in the autograph letter that accompanies this book. Dated 8 August 1869, Dodgson writes: "Happening to be at my publisher's yesterday, I thought I might as well get the book for your little girl at once – I hope you received it safe." He goes on to ask for a photograph of Rozel: "if you have ever had a good one taken of your little daughter (a vignette of the head & shoulders would be the best form) I should be much obliged if you would kindly allow me to purchase a print of it, as a reminiscence of our very brief, tho' pleasant acquaintance." This style of white binding for presentation was Dodgson's preferred choice, a preference dating back to the first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, when he first ordered 50 copies for presentation in red cloth and a single copy for Alice herself in white vellum. Provenance: sold at auction, 3 March 1958, Sotheby's London, £17, buyer J. Schwartz, the book noted in the auction catalogue as lacking its spine. With the loosely inserted bookseller's description of James F. Drake, Inc, New York, describing the book as rebacked with vellum. The long-established firm of James F. Drake ceased trading in 1965.

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: Berlin: lzdaterstov Gamayun, 1923, 1923. Octavo. Original blue paper-backed white boards, pictorial front cover illustrated by Zalshupin, top edge blue. Housed in a blue cloth chemise and blue quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Spine toned, boards a little rubbed, contents toned. An excellent copy. With 12 illustrations by Sergei Aleksandrovich Zalshupin. First edition of Nabokov's Russian translation. It was prepared by Nabokov at the age of 24 while he was an undergraduate at Cambridge, and is an imaginative rendering of Dodgson's classic, with striking illustrations in the Russian Constructivist style. Nabokov made some minor alterations to the text, changing some of the characters' names, and parodying Slavic rather than British nursery rhymes. The first Russian translation of Alice was published in 1879, and is believed to be the work of Olga Ivanovna Timiriaseva.

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872, 1872. 2 works, octavo (174 x 115; 174 x 115 mm). Early 20th-century dark red crushed morocco by Root, decorative gilt spines, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing a roll tool border with an art nouveau floral motif at the corners, gilt stamp in the centre of each cover (showing Alice, the Red Queen, the White Queen, and the Cheshire Cat), all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, with the original cloth covers and spines bound-in at the end. Housed in a custom-made morocco-trimmed marbled paper slipcase. With the simple book labels of the distinguished American bibliophile John Jay Paul. Extremities of slipcase a little rubbed. A very attractive set. 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 Clarendon 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 most handsomely bound set. Williams, Madan & Green 46 & 84. Bookseller Inventory # 109266

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: Macmillan, 1890.

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.

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.

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

Full dark blue-black morocco, covers decorated with gilt designs, backstrips richly gilt, gilt edges, invisibly rehinged, internally very clean, and both volumes well preserved in matching blue cloth cases. The Jennie Crocker Henderson copies with her bookplate in each volume. First published edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. First edition first issue of Through the Looking-Glass. Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenniel) 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 reset 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. This copy was last sold in 1971 by John Howell-Books to the present consignor. Loker, Grolier Children's 100, 35.

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

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: 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.
