About This Item

Lee and Shepard, Boston / Lee, Shepard, and Dillingham, 1872. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Tenniel, John. First American edition ('wade' for 'wabe' on p. 21). Professionally rebacked with original backstrip laid down (some loss from edges), new end sheets. Boards lightly rubbed and soiled, pencil name and year ('R.P. Blake 1880') on front flyleaf, a number of illustrations colored with pencil by a young reader, some quite nicely done. 1872 Hard Cover. x, [1]-224 pp. 8vo. The sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with fifty illustrations by John Tenniel. This first American edition was released with both red and green cloth (no priority) in the same year as the Macmillan edition printed in London, and contains the same typo in the Jabberwocky's poem. Our research indicates that the U.S. edition appears less frequently both in the trade and at auction than its British equivalent. Carroll's books about Alice are among the most collected works in modern literature, and have both inspired a number of animated and live actions films (most recently those directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice), as well as other adaptations.

Synopsis

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a work of children's literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), generally categorized as literary nonsense. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865).
