Descrizione libro: New York: D. Appleton, 1866, 1866. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Near Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, second (i.e., American) issue, comprising sheets of the suppressed 1865 printing of Alice with new title-page. 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. Original red cloth. Spine very slightly darkened, very minor wear to spine ends, small spot on back cover, hinges tender. A handsome copy. Half morocco case. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the most frequently quoted book in the world, after the Bible and the works of Shakespeare. Alice has been translated into more than 150 languages and gone through many hundreds of editions and countless stage and screen adaptations. “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its hardly less famous sequel Through the Looking Glass (1872), although ostensibly written for children are unique among ‘juveniles’ in appealing equally if not more strongly to adults. Written by an Oxford don, a clergyman, and a professional mathematician, they abound in characters—the White Knight, the Red Queen, the Mad Hatter, Humpty Dumpty—who are part of everybody’s mental furniture. And the philosophic profundity of scores, if not hundreds, of these characters’ observations, long household words wherever English is spoken, gains mightily from the delicious fantasy of their setting” (PMM). On July 4, 1862, the Rev. Charles Dodgson (“Lewis Carroll”) first told the story of Alice while on a river expedition with a fellow Oxford don and the three Liddell sisters, Alice, Edith, and Lorinda. The story’s namesake, Alice, asked for a written version of the tale, and Dodgson gave it to her for Christmas 1864. On seeing that manuscript, “Alice’s Adventures Underground,” friends encouraged him to expand the story into a book. In a letter to a friend Dodgson joked that the title might be taken to mean “instruction about mines,” and suggested the alternatives “Alice among the elves/goblins” or “Alice’s hour/doings/adventures in elf-land/wonderland.” “This second issue comprises those copies of the first edition still unbound when Lewis Carroll decided in July 1865 to cancel the edition. In 1866 the copies on hand were sold to Appleton and [1000] new title-pages were printed at Oxford, replacing the originals. The binding was evidently done in England, duplicating that for the first issue except in the substitution of Appleton’s name for Macmillan at the foot of the spine and in the omission of a binder’s ticket. Textually the Appleton issue agrees with the Macmillan 1865, the only difference being the cancel title-page” (Robert N. Taylor, Lewis Carroll at Texas: The Warren Weaver Collection). This is a very handsome copy of a beloved and much-read book, far superior to the worn and repaired copies usually encountered. Codice libro della libreria ABE-1508876266865

Descrizione libro: Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930., 1930. No Binding. Condizione libro: Very Good. LAURENCIN (Marie): Alice in Wonderland. [Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930]. Complete set of six colored pastel drawings for this unusual Art Deco vision of ALICE, being the actual finished originals made by MARIE LAURENCIN inside a set of black and white outline designs printed as proofs on wove paper. Her original outlines would have been made directly on lithographic stones for printing whereas this manuscript series was prepared for the printers to create color-separation plates (which explains why the color-printed images in the book do not precisely match the published drawings). Each picture is signed by the artist in colored pencil, with page size measuring 10-7/8 x 14-1/4 inches. Together with: 6 canceled outline proofs from the printers E Desjobert, signed and dated “October 1930”, with their printers’ stamp. These measure 9-3/4 x 11-7/8 inches on tinted BFK wove paper. This is one of the artist’s most famous illustrated books and a memorable version of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”. Signed by Illustrator(s). Codice libro della libreria abb_laurencin_alice

Descrizione libro: New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1866, 1866. The First 'Obtainable' Edition ofAlice's Adventures in WonderlandCARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. New York: D. Appleton, 1866. First New York edition, from the sheets of the true first English (suppressed) edition of 1865 and preceding the 1866 (second)English edition; to wit: the second issue of the first edition-first printing, and the first obtainable edition. Small quarto. x, 192 pp.Publisher's red cloth with gilt vignettes within triple gilt borders on upper and lower boards. Spine decoratively lettered in gilt, dark blue coated end-papers, all edges gilt. A few very minor stains on half-title, verso of frontispiece and tissue guard. Some very small chips to spine extremities, small, one half inch area of wear (through the cloth) on rear joint, minimal rubbing to lower corners, some very minor staining to covers, still one of the best copies that we have seen - entirely untouched, the inner hinges absolutely sound. Chemised within a quarter red morocco clamshell case.This is one of the 1,952 sets of sheets of the original suppressed 1865 print run, that were sent to Appleton in New York for machine-folding and binding-up with a substituted New York title-page. The last example of the original 48 copies (see detailed note below) of the 1865 Alice to appear at auction was the Montagu-Rosenbach-Johnson-Kettaneh-Schiller copy. That copy was rebound in Morocco by Rivière for L.S. Montagu and had with it ten of the original drawings by John Tenniel. It fetched $1.4 million at Christie's New York in December 1998.It is extremely unusual to find a copy of this book that has never been touched, repaired or strengthened in some way. In over fifty years I cannot recall seeing more than a handful of 'untouched' copies - this is actually an 1865 Alice but with a New York title-page (DJB)."The first edition, familiarly known to book-collectors as 'the 1865 Alice', was printed at the Oxford University Press. This edition was at the last moment cancelled by the author, for whom Macmillan's were publishing 'on commission' (i.e. as agent, not sponsors) because of what was considered the poor printing of Sir John Tenniel's almost equally famous illustrations. The few early copies sent out were recalled; seemingly with fair success, since less than a score are known to survive today. The book was then reprinted, by Clay, with the title-page re-dated 1866, and this constitutes the first regularly published edition. Dodgson thriftily sold 500 copies of the suppressed 1865 printing for publication, with suitably altered title-page, by Appleton's of New York in 1866" (Printing and the Mind of Man)."On the suppression of the first (1865) edition, Messrs. Macmillan were left with a number of unbound sheets on their hands. These, one would have thought, would have been destroyed, but, from motives of economy perhaps, or may be because the defects in the illustrations were only apparent to the author, they were not destroyed?It is known that these sheets were sold to Messrs. Appleton of New York ?[who] removed the Macmillan title page and substituted one with their own imprint, had the sheets bound in London, probably in the covers intended for the original edition, and then issued them in New York?the suppressed edition of 1865 and that issued by Appleton in New York in 1866 are identical" (Williams)."At first it was agreed to sell the condemned printing as waste-paper, but eventually there came an opportunity for the original unbound sheets to be sold off to an overseas publishing house who had requested to buy up two thousand copies for distribution in America. Both Tenniel and Dodgson gave their consent to this proposal, and thus 1,952 copies (of the original 2,000 copy print run) were sold to the firm David Appleton & Co.; the title pages were redone with a New York imprint dated 1866, the sheets were machine-folded and put into cloth bindings with Appleton's name on the lower spine.

Descrizione libro: London: Macmillan and Co, 1866, 1866. Octavo. Original pictorial cloth gilt, dark green endpapers, binder's label on rear pastedown, gilt edges. Housed in a red quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contemporary ownership signature dated 1866, small shelf label to front pastedown. Worn at extremities with loss to head and foot of spine, minor splitting to front joint, some spotting to contents. Wood-engraved illustrations after John Tenniel. First published edition. The ownership signature is dated August 1866. The publication of the first Alice book set a pattern for many of Dodgson's succeeding publications. The book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865. On 19 July 1865, Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator John Tenniel was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing, so decided to suppress the whole edition of 2,000 copies. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market. The unused Oxford sheets were sold to Appleton's for use in their New York edition, published the following summer. The Macmillan edition was published in an edition of 4,000 copies.

Descrizione libro: New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1866. Hard Cover. Condizione libro: Very Good. Tenniel, John (illustratore). 1st Edition. First edition, second and earliest obtainable issue, with variant A page [5] with "Alice! A childish ", variant A page [6] with "Rabbit Hole," variant A title page with the 'b' in 'bye' directly above and somewhat to the right of the 'T' in 'Tenniel.' Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Alice to the front board in gilt, illustration of the Cheshire Cat to the rear board in gilt, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Very good, with some toning and dimming to the spine, discreet repairs to the spine ends, light soiling to the boards, corners lightly rubbed and bumped, spine cracked and holding inside the front cover, Mission ownership stamp the front pastedown, one or two faint spots to the otherwise very clean pages. A very square and attractive copy, very scarce in the original cloth. Housed in a custom folding box. Taylor 2. The true first issue of Alice was published by Macmillan in London in a print run of 2,000 copies, but was quickly suppressed because neither author nor artist approved of the quality of the reproductive illustrations. Macmillan sold its remaining pages to Appleton in New York, who bound this second issue with a cancel title page. Aside from the new title, the Appleton Alice agree with all textual issues of the 1865 Alice, including the slight variants on page [5] and [6], which neither indicate collecting priority nor earlier printing. Similarly, the slightly different Appleton title pages are the result of the book being "printed in pairs from two nominally identical settings of type." Only a handful of the true first issue survived (many were donated to children's hospitals), making this second issue the first obtainable issue. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland includes a black and white frontispiece along with forty-two in-text illustrations by John Tenniel, Dodgson's frequent artist collaborator.

Descrizione libro: Printed by R. Clay and Son for Macmillan and Co. -72, 1866. FIRST EDITIONS, 2 vols., ownership inscription dated 1870 to half-title of first vol., bookplate, occasional soiling, occasional short tears, pp. [xii (including half-title and frontispiece)], 192; [xii (including half-title and frontispiece)], 224, 3, 8vo, original cloth gilt, gilt edges, both vols. rebacked preserving the original spines, the first vol. in a slip-in case, sound. With the inverted S in the final line of the Contents in the first vol., which is thought to be a feature of the earliest state of the edition, and the incorrect reading 'wade' on p. 21 of the second vol., which certainly does indicate first issue. Strictly speaking, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' is the Second (First published) Edition, following the cancellation of the Clarendon Press printing at the behest of Tenniel, backed up by Dodgson. This edition was re-set by Clay, and although dated 1866 on the title was published for the Christmas market in 1865 - as evidenced here by the inscription on an original end-paper. Likewise, 'Through the Looking-Glass' appeared at the end of 1871. (Williams [Crutch] 46 and 84). Codice libro della libreria 55687

Bound by Bayntun (Riviere) in recent red crushed morocco, title to spine and motifs to compartments gilt, multicoloured morocco onlay of Alice and the Dodo to front cover, turn-ins and edges gilt, pale purple silk doublures, original cloth bound in at rear. Odd spot of faint foxing to contents; an excellent copy, handsomely bound. Frontispiece and 41 illustrations by John Tenniel. Second (first published) edition, with the inverted "S" in the final line of the contents listing which is thought to be a feature of the earliest state of the edition. The publication of the first Alice book set a pattern for many of Dodgson's succeeding publications. The book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865. On 19 July 1865, Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator John Tenniel was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing, so decided to suppress the whole edition of 2,000 copies. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market. The unused Oxford sheets were sold to Appleton's for use in their New York edition, published the following summer. The Macmillan edition was published in an edition of 4,000 copies.

PRESENTATION COPY, SECOND (FIRST PUBLISHED) EDITION, first issue, 20 colour illustrations, a little light finger-soiling in places, pp. [xii], 56, [8], 4to, original cloth-backed pictorial glazed paper boards, a touch of professional repair to backstrip, light scratching and soiling overall, corners worn, good. The author has inscribed (in characteristic purple ink) to the half-title, 'For Nina, from the Author. Mar. 25, 1890'. As with the original 'Alice in Wonderland', the first set of sheets Macmillan printed of this adapted edition for children were rejected, and a number of them later found their way to America with a new title page. After an adjustment of the colouring and a second print run, which Carroll approved (calling the sheets "a great success"), it was published around Easter 1890, with 100 presentation copies - of which this is one - being inscribed on March 25th.

Descrizione libro: MacMillan and Co. 1866 &, London, 1872. First editions. Octavo, two volumes. Bound in early 20th-century full red morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Gilt vignettes to front and rear panels of each volume, gilt tooling on spine. All edges gilt, silk endpapers. Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear. In fine condition. A very attractive pair. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ‘Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete’" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

Descrizione libro: Macmillan, 1866. First published edition. Finely bound by Chelsea Bindery in full red morocco with vignette of Alice holding the pig to upper cover and the Cheshire Cat to rear; raised bands on the spine and gilt titles. All edges gilt and olive endpapers. Pages 17-24 misbound after page 32. A beautiful copy of this most important piece of children's literature. Illustrations in black and white by John Tenniel. This classic story was thought up by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseudonym Lewis Carroll) on a summer's day on the river Isis near Oxford. During the day on the river with friends he told the tale of Wonderland to 3 little girls from the Liddell family. Later Alice Liddell begged Dodgson to write the story down for her. He did this and added a few of his own illustrations. Before giving the book to Alice, Dodgson showed the book to several friends, including fantasy writer George MacDonald, who encouraged him to have the book published. In order to get the tale ready for publication it was enlarged and punch illustrator, John Tenniel, was commissioned to do the drawings. Macmillan then printed around 2000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and insisted it was reprinted before being published. Using a different printer this 1866 version is the first published edition. It has gone on to be considered one of the finest children's books ever written. Codice libro della libreria 21699

Descrizione libro: D. Appleton and Co, New York, 1866. Tenniel, John (illustratore). Octavo. (v)ff., 192pp. First edition, second issue. With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel. Carroll's enduring tale of a child's dreamworld was first issued in 1865 by Macmillan and Company of London, but Carroll and Tenniel were unhappy with the print quality of the illustrations and canceled the issue, insisting that the book be reprinted. Few copies of that first issue were ever released; fewer still are known to exist today. Many of the sheets had yet to be bound when Carroll suppressed the edition, and a number of these unbound sheets had been sold to Carroll's American publisher, Appleton, who added its own title page. Thus, the first American edition is comprised of the sheets from the suppressed London edition. Subsequently, Macmillan issued its second edition of Alice with re-set type and reprinted illustrations. Alice was an immediate sensation. Copies of the book were avidly read by their young owners and tend to show some wear as a result. This copy bound by Rivière in full red calf with triple gilt rules on both covers, gilt dentelles, and marbled endpapers. Spine richly gilt in six compartments, with leather labels in two compartments, lettered in gilt. Original endpapers and red cloth binding bound-in following the text. Rear board faintly scuffed, spine lightly rubbed in spots. Pages show occasional light finger smudges and a few professionally repaired marginal tears; very faint owner's inscription.

Descrizione libro: 1893. explaining "an (apparent) liberty which I propose to take this week, in sending Olive a copy of 'Sylvie and Bruno Concluded'. Without some explanation it might look like a sort of 'feeler' towards renewing negotations as to being allowed to try to establish a friendship with her. So let me assure you that I have no such idea, and that I still abide loyally by the decision to which you and Mrs Butler have come ." he continues that it would be "a great pity, for no better reason than that you and I hold different views as to the expediency of friendships between old gentlemen and young ladies, to leave my gift incomplete ." and he hopes that Olive will be allowed to accept Volume II, he ends with his wishes for Christmas, 3 sides 8vo., The Chestnuts, Guildford, 25th December Dodgson made a game for Olive and inscribed it to her "from the White Knight Nov 21 1892". Perhaps that was when her parents decided that the relationship should be ended. He had evidently already given her the first volume of Sylive and Bruno. Codice libro della libreria 36018
