ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel.
Macmillan and Co, 1866. Second (First Published) Edition. Recently rebound by Bayntun-Riviere in full red morocco with gilt decoration to match the original cloth binding. All edges gilt. With cloth slipcase. Some very slightly dusty to edges; occasional light foxing; else an unusually clean, fresh copy. The first (‘withdrawn’) edition and the second edition are taller than later printings. Quite often, when rebound, they are found trimmed and re-gilded. This copy has the original gilt edges and has not been trimmed. It remains uncertain how many copies of this edition were printed. The likelihood is that two thousand copies were printed, but it may have been as many as four thousand. The book was actually issued in November 1865, the same year as the first (‘withdrawn’) edition.
