Seventh edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title, “Nellie Welford from the Author. July 17, 1895.” It is most likely that this is the same Nellie Welford who was the goddaughter of Dodgson’s sister, Mary Charlotte Collingwood (1835–1911), by whom she was left £5 in her will.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt, triple gilt rules to covers, gilt roundels with “Alice” motifs to covers, black coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom purple morocco solander box. Frontispiece with tissue-guard and 41 illustrations by John Tenniel. Minor bubbling to cloth, spine leaned and slightly faded, 3 illustrations of Alice with a little colour neatly applied, an excellent copy.

Bibliography: The Carrollian, Issues 2-6, 1998, p. 12. Williams–Madan–Green–Crutch 46e.
