Through The Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

Carroll, Lewis [Dodgson, Charles]

London: Macmillan & Co., 1877 Illustrated by John Tenniel. People's edition. Inscribed by Carroll to his child friend on the half title: "Marie Louise Butterfield, / from the author /May 26, 1896". Publisher's green cloth, with an illustration of Alice and Humpty Dumpty to the front board in red and black. Very good, with a slight lean and some toning to the spine, minor rubbing to the extremities, faint soiling to the otherwise fresh boards, light offsetting to the endpapers, a few illustrations hand colored with crayon, otherwise clean pages. A very sturdy and presentable copy, signed and inscribed by the author. Carroll inscribed this book to Marie-Louise Roosevelt Pierrepont (née Butterfield), noted artist and the 6th Countess Manvers and one of Lewis Carroll's child friends. Marie-Louise moved to Oxford at the age of six, and she met Carroll shortly thereafter. Indeed, he wrote in his diary on May 14, 1895, noting that he met a young girl named Marie Louise and that he gave her a copy of Alice's Adventures Underground. He later gave her this copy of Through the Looking-Glass at a friend's birthday party in 1896 when Marie-Louise was only seven years old - the same age as Alice Liddell when she inspired Carroll to write the Alice series. Through the Looking-Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. Inscribed by Author. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Through The Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

Carroll, Lewis [Dodgson, Charles]

London: Macmillan and Co., 1872 Illustrated by John Tenniel. First edition, first printing, with "wade" instead of "wabe" to page 21. Original publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of the Red Queen to the front board in gilt, with an illustration of the White Queen to the rear panel in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with minor repairs to the spine ends, some toning to the spine, light soiling and some dimming to the boards, binder's ticket to the rear pastedown, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, some scattered pencil underlining and minor soling to the otherwise very fresh interior. A sturdy and pleasing copy. Housed in a custom slipcase with matching chemise. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Throughout the novel, Carroll includes nonsense poetry, including the playful and popular "Jabberwocky." Like Alice, Through the Looking Glass is illustrated by John Tenniel. Carroll originally intended to write this sequel as early as 1866, but had trouble persuading Tenniel to illustrate it. Writer and artist had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism: just as the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited. Tenniel demanded the removal of a character that was too difficult to illustrate, whereas Carroll replaced Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

The colophon reads: "This is copy number 286 of fifteen hundred copies of this Limited Edition of Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, with the illustrations by John Tenniel re-engraved by Frederic Warde priunted for members of the Limited Editions Club by the printing house of William Edwin Rudge Mount Vernon, N.Y. and is graced with the signature of "the original Alice.".This copy is one of those complete with that signature, written in blue ink in a fine and firm hand by Alice Hargreaves, who only got to sign some of the copies before she died in 1934 at the age of 82. The book is bound in deep blue calf stamped gilt, with all edges gilt, and is contained in a simple, lightly worn red cloth slipcase that repeats the book's spine design. The sole fault to this copy is the light wear and half-inch chipping to the top and bottom of the book's spine. I am of two minds about removing the spine and laying it down on new material, just for the sake of appearance, so I have left it alone, "as found". It is otherwise a pristine copy, with no internal marks or soil whatever. This is an absolute must for an "Alice" collection.

Our research indicates that the U.S. edition appears less frequently both in the trade and at auction than its British equivalent. Carroll's books about Alice are among the most collected works in modern literature, and have both inspired a number of animated and live actions films (most recently those directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia

Beautiful binding by Riviere and Son. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Some wear to top of spine, and spine itself seems slightly faded. Covers have a light white residue in the pores of the leather (looks to me as though someone tried to saddle soap or polish these covers).

Through the Looking-glass and What Alice Found There

Carroll, Lewis

NY: Harper & Brothers. I was about to catalogue this as one of the nicest copies I'd seen, but I found a worm in the apple. One plate has a tear across the foredge and a few inches into the image, which is surprising as it is otherwise a lovely copy. This copy is not the white paper binding you usually see but a rich red cloth with gilt titles, and the cloth dustjacket is also the same cloth and gilt stamped. There are some spots on the rear cover of the binding which are noticeable only in reflected light. The top edge is gilt. It would be worth it to find a damaged or beaten copy in order to replace the plate. I was going to price it at $200 but because of the plate have dropped it considerably. . Very Good/fine. Cloth. 1902.
