Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel.
First published edition, and a beautifully bound copy. Famously, the 1865 first printing of Alice was withdrawn on account of Dodgson’s objections to the printing of Tenniel’s engravings. The book was re-set by Clay’s for publication by Macmillan sometime around the beginning of November 1865, while the rejected 1865 sheets were given a new tipped-in title and re-issued by Appleton’s in New York in April or May 1866. A lovely copy in a handsome binding.
Octavo (185 125 mm). Bound by Maltby in burgundy morocco, titles and roll to bands gilt, single rule to boards blind, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, and illustrations to text by John Tenniel. Minor surface abrasion and paper repair to single leaf and small corner-piece missing to another leaf, some occasional foxing and browning, spine just a little faded, an excellent copy.
