Notes

Second edition (the first published in the UK), first issue. With a note inscribed by Dodgson, cut from a form and tipped-in to the half-title: "May, 1890. Charles L. Dodgson. Ch. Ch., Oxford." The most notable alteration between the first and second editions is the printing of the sheets on white rather than toned paper and the change to the illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, removing Alice's profile. The first issue has "Price four shillings" above the imprint.
