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.

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: D. Appleton and Co. / Lee, Shepard and Dillingham, New York, 1872. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. First American edition. 2 volumes. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1866, Appleton) and Through the Looking-Glass (1872, Lee, Shepard), both First American editions published in New York. Freshly bound in full morocco with title label and pictorial cut out under plastic. Both with new marbled endpapers. Original half-title present in Adventures only. Minor fading to the contents. 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

About this Item: Dodge, New York, 1909. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Bessie Pease Guttman (illustrator). First Edition. Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. New York: Dodge, (1909). Illustrations by Bessie Pease Gutmann. A FINE bright copy with first issue decorated endpapers in the Original Dust Jacket (which is slightly soiled, a little chipped, but virtually complete and a wonderful survival). Research suggests, but can't confirm, that this is also the first issue of the dust jacket. There are more ornate DJs which occasionally appear bearing the same $1.50 price but also a later street address (not that found on the title page) on the back panel. Whether a first issue or a variant dust jacket, it is rare indeed. The Lovett bibliography doesn't have a clue on the subject. Bessie Pease Gutmann (1876-1960) was an American magazine, calendar and postcard illustrator who specialized in innocent looking cupid-like young children. Of the famous Wonderland illustrators, her Alice looks about three or four years old and thus has a curious purity to her, surprisingly charming and appealing. Seller Inventory # 002047

Through the Looking Glass 1ed Carrol Tenniel Alice Wonderland “Beware the Jabberwock, my son The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass ‘Through the Looking Glass’ was published a few years after the success of ‘Adventures in Wonderland’. While it was never as popular as ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ it did include ‘the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language’, the “Jabberwocky” (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as “galumphing” and “chortle” While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations.

About this Item: Mansfield and Wessels, New York, 1899. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good ++. Blanche McManus (illustrator). 1st Edition. RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- TRUE FIRST PRINTINGS !! >>>>ONLY PRINTING, ALL BLANCHE McMANUS COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS! RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- RARE FIRST & ONLY PRINTINGS !! Yes, they are the ONLY PRINTING done in the Original Grey Cloth & Published by Mansfield & Wessels. The Second Printing (Edition) in 1900 was done in Mustard Cloth with Identical Illustrations on both book covers, unlike this First Set with Different Illustrations on the 2. Also, The Copyright was 1900 by Wessels only! There are a number of reasons why, including Wessels taking the Company late in 1899 & an error in the contents listing that needed clarification (Number of Color Plates in "LOOKING GLASS" Was Stated as 12 --IN ERROR! Publication was stopped after this printing, and the Company was taken over by Wessels who did publish it again in early 1900, but in the different Color Cloth, New Cover Designs, & CORRECTION of PLATE LISTING ERROR! That error was in "Through the Looking Glass" which had the specific error in which the number of Color Plates it was published with was Copyright 1899 by Mansfield & Wessels, Both in Very Good - Near Fine Condition. Mansfield & Wessels (New York) published the First Issues of Lewis Carroll's two classic tales to be fully illustrated by an artist other than Tenniel. Fortunately, they chose the incomparable Blanche McManus!! Similar Front Color Embossed Illustrations over Original Grey Cloth with Gilt Titles and yellow/blue/red characters, each title having a different character layout. __________________________________________________________________ NOTE: The question to ask when you view this and the Companion 1900 listing is this: Why were 2 Printings/Varieties, and only 2, done within 1 year of each other. That may seem silly to ask - of course publishers made many impressions of books over years. But that is not the case here. There were only these two (not counting the compendiums done later)! Other than the interpersonal complications of Wessels and McManus being Married at the time, There were two basic publication reasons: 1. The Original 1899 "Looking Glass" had a publisher's error -- specifically, the number of Color Plates it was published with was listed as 12 in the title page. But there were ONLY 10.Never any more! Dealers invariably mislabel their books as "missing" 2 Color Plates in the "Looking Glass". Now, if they view my listings, they will know the error -- an I will have given up a trade secret!! The 1899 clearly states Twelve (12); and the 1900 CORRECTS The Error, Clearly stating Ten (10)! It wasn't because they decided to remove only the so called "last two" Color Plates, and only those two, from the Second Printing. It clearly corrected the Original error that the turn-of the-century dealers and buyers must have vehemently brought to the Publisher's attention!! Their "Looking Glass" books were "missing" the last 2 Color Plates, as listed! Needless to say, in order to not lose credibility, they needed to IMMEDIATELY correct the problem. THUS THE SECOND PRINTING/EDITION/VERSION (You choose the term) was born. 2. The second problem (and I don't claim to know the reasons) was that Wessels took over the publication from Mansfield at the same time!! So what to do?? Wessels could not simply publish the same exact book with the one correction of the number of Plates in one of the two books.He did not own the Dual copyright; and, even if he could use the very same books with only a corrected Title page, Dealers and buyers might be confused by both changes - the number of Plates listed, and the Publisher's name. Thus, the Changed Cover Cloth from Gray to Dark Yellow was born! And, to further eliminate any confusion over the number 12, THEY REPLACED THE NUMBER IN THE 1900 ALICE WITH "MANY" (There are still ALL 12)! _____________________________. Seller Inventory # 000367

About this Item: London : Macmillan & Co., 1872. True First Edition 1st printing!, 1872. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1872 1ed 1st printing! Through the Looking Glass Carrol Tenniel Alice Wonderland “Beware the Jabberwock, my son The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass ‘Through the Looking Glass’ was published a few years after the success of ‘Adventures in Wonderland’. While it was never as popular as ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ it did include ‘the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language’, the “Jabberwocky” (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as “galumphing” and “chortle” While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations.
