Notes

First edition in Italian, first impression, second binding. There are some key differences, as identified by Williams, Madan and Green, between this and the first binding: the rules to the covers are blind-stamped rather than gilt, the top edge only is gilt, rather than all the edges, and the endpapers are plain, rather than coated grey or green. First published in English in 1865 and 1871 respectively, the Alice books were rapidly translated into numerous languages.
