Complete with the playing counters

Second (first published) edition. This edition is dated a year later than the first edition (as with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland), which was rejected by Dodgson due to the poor printing quality. Accompanying the book are a playing board marked in a lattice pattern and coloured counters; Dodgson's aim with the game card was to depict syllogistic reasoning in such a way that even a child could understand it.
