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: Macmillan & Co, London, 1886. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. John Tenniel (illustrator). 1st Edition. 1866, Lewis Carroll's Alice Adventures in Wonderland, First Published Edition in custom slipcase It is very rare to find a first 1866 edition of Alice Adventure's in Wonderland in such good condition. As one of the most famous and sought after first edition books of all time, this is a real find. The edition has original cloth boards and spine, which has undergone some professional repair and new end papers. The Clarendon Press first issue of the the first edition Alice was recalled and there is some question as to whether it was ever published in the strict sense of being on sale to the public. Apparently only fifty copies left the publisher's office. This copy is the first edition published copy which was re-set by the printers, Richard Clay. Black and white illustrations by John Tenniel throughout the text. It is housed in a three quarter leather slipcase and and chemise. Red cloth boards with original red cloth boards. Triple gilt borders and three circular lines with illustration of Alice holding a pig. The back is similar except the picture within the circular lines is that of the Cheshire Cat. Some small marks to the covers. Protected by a clear film cover. Bright gilt page ends. Replaced grey end papers. The title page is marked with imprint and date only. Richard Clay's trademark on page 6. The contents are clean.193 pp. 8vo 7 1/2 x 5". Seller Inventory # 000472

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.

Illustrated by John Tenniel with forty-two illustrations in volume one and fifty illustrations in volume two. A particularly desirable set as both volumes are bound in the original cloth with gilt titles to spines and circular gilt illustrations on both covers featuring Alice holding a pig, the Cheshire cat, the Red Queen, and the White Queen. Each volume has been expertly rebacked using the original boards, spines, and endpages with the repair visible in a few places along the spine ends and joints. There is minor fraying and wear to the spine ends, corners, and edges of the boards. The spine of Alice is darkened although the gilt title remains bright. There is minor rubbing and a few small spots of soiling to the boards of both volumes. There are two small dampstains on the rear board of Through the Looking-Glass, one of which effects the gilt illustration. There are a few bubbles under the cloth of Through the Looking Glass. The interior of Alice is lightly foxed and top margin is lightly browned. The verso of the front free endpage in Through the Looking Glass has remnants of glue where a bookplate was once adhered. The facing half title page is lightly browned as a result. Both volumes have a few light smudge marks and a few small spots of soiling. Alice has pale blue end pages and Through the Looking Glass has dark blue end pages. Full edges gilt. Both volumes are housed in a red cloth box with gilt titles of both volumes to the spine. The spine of the box is faded and the panels have minor rubbing and wear. Very good condition. CHILD/122210. Seller Inventory # 24355

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

Duckworth from Victoria, June 20, 1870". The Rev. Robinson Duckworth (1834-1911) was a Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford from 1860 to 1876, where, from 1866 to 1870, he was Instructor and the Governor to Victoria's son Prince Leopold. He was Chaplain-in-Ordinary to Queen Victoria from 1870 to 1901 and there is a round memorial window dedicated to him in Westminster Abbey. At Oxford Reverend Duckworth knew Lewis Carroll and was present on the original boating expedition of 4 July 1862 during which Alice's Adventures were first told by Lewis Carroll to Alice Liddell and friends. Robinson Duckworth wrote his own account of the river-trip in a letter sent to Stuart Collingwood, who was compiling his second volume of biographical and literary pieces, The Lewis Carroll Picture Book. See also The Letters of Lewis Carroll, edited by Morton N. Cohen, Volume 1, page 124-125 and page 63. Laid in the book is a 1940s reprint of a photograph of Robinson Duckworth.

About this Item: London: Macmillan and Co. Ltd., [c.1910], 1910. Sheet size: 82 × 60 cm Some very light creasing and a touch of marginal spotting, otherwise fresh and clean. Presented in a black wooden frame with UV glass. Colour lithographed linen-backed wall-poster First and only edition. The use of John Macfarlane is the only instance of Macmillan having licensed illustrations for Alice in Wonderland by an artist other than Tenniel. In its original format, the set of six was issued joined at the head as a kind of flipchart, most likely intended for classroom display. The posters could be mounted on an easel and the illustrations displayed one at a time while the class read through the book. The complete set is now rare: OCLC locates just one set, COPAC adds another at Oxford. Many must have been split up and varnished for hanging in the schoolroom: two individual prints in that condition were offered at auction in 1997. As part of the celebrations for the first Alice's Day in 2007, the Bodleian staged an exhibition including the earliest editions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and amongst "Other highlights of the display [were] two posters from a set of 6 based on Tenniel's designs by J. MacFarlane.". Seller Inventory # 73178
