About This Item

Macmillan and Co. Limited. London. 1898. FIRST SIXPENNY EDITIONS. 8vo. (8.4 x 6 inches). Both volumes are the first printings of the Macmillan sixpenny series. Illustrated with forty two and fifty line illustrations, respectively, by John Tenniel. Publishers original red printed paper wraps with adverts on the rear panels. Page edges a bit chipped, as to be expected with the cheap paper used in production, and a little toned but overall these are very good internally. The front paper wraps for both volumes and the rear for Looking Glass are present. The two volumes were bound together but not with the rear wrap for Alice. The front wrap for Looking Glass is in very good bright condition, being bound into the middle of the volume where it has been well protected. The volumes have had a strip of black tape placed on the spine which has now perished on the spine (covered now by clear tape) but is still present on the inner edges of the front and rear wraps. Small neat ink stamp of Alden and Co, Booksellers, Oxford, at the bottom margin of the front wrapper. While not the most attractive example these two First printings of the sixpenny series are a rare survivor with their wraps and not in too bad condition for 1898 paperback Children's books.

Synopsis

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, tell the story of a young girl in a fantasy world filled with peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The classic tale of literary nonsense takes the reader on an exploration of logic and absurdities. The Alice books — sometimes combined or referred to with the abbreviated title Alice in Wonderland — have been translated into at least 97 languages with over a hundred different editions. The books have also been adapted numerous times into films (both live action and cartoon), plays, and musicals.
