New York: D. Appleton, 1872. First edition, second issue of Adventures; first edition of Looking-Glass, first issue with "wabe" misspelled. Illustrations by John Tenniel. 2 vols. 8vo. Original red cloth gilt. Adventures expertly rebacked with original spine laid down, Looking Glass lightly rubbed, lower inner hinge tender. Very good plus overall. Housed together in half morocco clamshell box. First edition, second issue of Adventures; first edition of Looking-Glass, first issue with "wabe" misspelled. Illustrations by John Tenniel. 2 vols. 8vo. The Immortal Alice. An attractive set of the Alice books, with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in the first printing, second issue, comprising the sheets of the original London printing of 1865 sent to America with new title pages bearing the Appleton imprint. This printing had been rejected by Dodgson because illustrator John Tenniel strongly disliked the way the illustrations were printed, but it is the earliest obtainable edition (only about 15 copies are known to survive with the 1865 title page). Through the Looking-Glass is in the first edition.
Dodgson's Alice books are landmarks of nineteenth-century children's literature and have fascinated and influenced writers, artists, and readers ever since their first appearance. Williams, Madan and Green 44 & 84; PMM 354 (note); Grolier 100 Children's Literature 35 (1865 issue)

Description:
San Francisco: City Lights Pocket Bookshop, 1956. Original wraps. Near Fine. A remarkable Association copy of the 1956 correct 1st edition. This copy not only conforms to all the original issue points but is in beautiful, near-pristine condition. Furthermore, THIS COPY IS SIGNED BY 5 OF THE KEY FIGURES IN THE BOOK'S GENESIS: 1) ALLEN GINSBERG (on the title page); 2) LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI (on the copyright page); 3) LUCIEN CARR (on the dedication page); 4) WILLIAM BURROUGHS (also on the dedication page); and 5) CARL SOLOMON (on the first blank endpaper). In other words, this copy is signed by the book's author, its publisher and by 3 of its 5 dedicatees (only Jack Kerouac's and Neal Cassady's signatures are missing from this copy). Notably, of the 5 signatures, all critically important to the birth and evolution of "Howl", Lucien Carr's appears to be the most elusive. We know that Carr's relationship with the Beats grew tense early on and that he insisted his name be removed from all subsequent… Read More
