Description
1882 Through the Looking Glass Lewis Carrol Tenniel Illustrated Alice Wonderland

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” ― Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass

‘Through the Looking Glass’ was published a few years after the success of ‘Adventures in Wonderland’. While it was never as popular as ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ it did include ‘the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language’, the “Jabberwocky” (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as “galumphing” and “chortle”

While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations.
