What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

With a frontispiece and forty-two illustrations from John Tenniel, the majority of which have been neatly hand-coloured by a prior owner.

Upon the original publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 1865, Tenniel was far more well-known than Carroll, owing to his successful career as an illustrator and cartoonist, including many pieces for the satirical periodical 'Punch'.

Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) was a mathematician and author credited in this work with creating perhaps the greatest example of literary nonsense. Whilst the work was meant for children - indeed the tale was originally told to a friend's daughter, Alice Liddell - the word play, logic and fantastical have interested and delighted scholars since its publication.

With contemporay advertisements - including for Great Ormond St. Hospital - to verso of front wrap, and to front and rear endpapers.

The seventh printing of Macmillan's sixpenny series, which was first published in 1898.
