1886 Alice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll Tenniel Illustrated + Looking Glass 2v

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Lewis Carroll’s landmark masterpiece, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,’ was first published in 1865. This fascinating fantasy tale of a young girl falling down a rabbit hole, is surely one of the most iconic pieces of literature for all time. It has been adapted into many different versions of film, most notably by Disney in 1951.

A lovely first edition, “Alice in Wonderland”, featuring forty-two of Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations. This early printing is scarce and highly desirable!

Offered here with ‘Alice’ is the sequel to the popular story – ‘Through the Looking Glass’ which Tenniel also illustrated. This 1st edition of ‘Looking Glass’ is a (stated) thirty-sixth thousand printing.

Item number: #3408

Price: $1500
