Only a few copies of that first printing are known to have survived. Although this copy of Alice is dated 1866, it was actually published in time for Christmas 1865, post-dated to the new year.

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: 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. 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).

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: Macmillan, London, 1877. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Good. John Tenniel (illustrator). Carroll, Lewis [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]. THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, or what Alice Found There. London: Macmillan, 1877. Early Edition, published five years after the first edition. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO THIS NEPHEW, inscribed on the half-title: "Bertram James Collingwood/ from his affte. Uncle/ the Author/ August. 7. 1878." Original cloth, all edges gilt. GOOD only, having endured old and inexpert attempts at repair to the spine and inner hinges. There is some dark smudging to the last eight pages but the covers are relatively clean. While not glistening with eye appeal, this is an important copy having been presented to one of the author's two beloved nephews (the other became his biographer). Bertram James Collingwood [1871- 1934] shared his uncle's love for mathematics and logic (illuminating letters between the two which discuss these subjects can be found in various institutions). When Dodgson made his funeral arrangements, he arranged for Bertram to receive (in 1898) that portion of his library related to Mathematics, Science, and Medicine. Like his uncle, Collingwood became a professor and had a brilliant career at University (Cambridge) but, unlike his uncle, he was a fanatical sportsman and is best known today for having donated the "Collingwood Cup" which is still the championship trophy for Irish University Football, celebrating its 100th birthday in 2014. While we have seen numerous copies of the author's inscribed books, those actually presented to members of his family are highly uncommon, especially in original cloth. In a splendid new quarter-morocco slipcase. Inscribed By Author. Bookseller Inventory # 001675

Two separately published (but obviously related) volumes. "Wonderland" with an introduction by Henry Seidel Canby; "Looking Glass" with an introduction by Carl Van Doren.

"Wonderland": Quarto-Millenary 36; Newman & Wiche 36a. "Looking Glass": Quarto-Millenary 65; Newman & Wiche 65a. Just barely perceptible fading to spines, a breath of rubbing to extremities, a few trivial internal imperfections, but still easily and clearly FINE COPIES, fresh, bright, and clean inside and out. These attractively-produced private press copies of two of the best-loved works of children's literature represent the only editions to be signed by the girl for whom they were written, Alice Liddell Hargreaves (1852-1934). Alice was the daughter of Henry Liddell, dean of Christ Church, Oxford, where Charles Dodgson was a lecturer in mathematics. Dodgson, whose hobby was photography, frequently photographed Alice and her sisters and became a close family friend, playing games with, and making up stories for, the children. According to DNB, it was on a picnic on 4 July 1862 that "he invented the story of Alice in Wonderland. The real Alice was then aged ten and pleaded with him to write Alice's adventures down for her, which he carefully did, supplying his own illustrations, in a green notebook that has become one of the most cherished literary manuscripts in the British Library." Over the years, Alice steadfastly refused requests to sign copies of other editions of the two works. But, late in her life, and prompted by a significant monetary inducement ($1.50 per signature), she was prevailed upon to sign volumes from both of the present editions. She did not, in fact, sign all of the copies of these printings (subscribers not willing to pay a surcharge did not get an autographed copy). "Quarto Millenary" estimates that Hargreaves signed about 1,200 copies of "Wonderland," and Newman & Wiches says that only about 500 of "Looking Glass" were signed. Our volume owes its appeal in large measure to the taste and skill of typographer and designer Frederic Warde (1894-1939), whose lovely italic hand graces the colophon here. Perhaps best known for developing the elegant italic font Arrighi, Warde began his career as a printer with the house of William Edwin Rudge, later supervised the legendary Officina Bodoni, and later still did work for several American private presses, including Crosby Gaige and, of course, the Limited Editions Club. EACH VOLUME ONE OF 1,500 COPIES (the first #1006, the second #408), BOTH SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES, THE "ORIGINAL ALICE." "WONDERLAND" ALSO SIGNED BY FREDERIC WARDE, the volume's designer.
