Macmillan & Co. London. 1877 + 1873.
TWO VOLUMES. EARLY EDITIONS. 8vo, (7.5 x 5.2 inches). Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Fifty fifth Thousand), Through the Looking Glass (Thirty eighth Thousand). Both volumes Illustrated throughout, with forty and fifty line engravings respectively, by John Tenniel. Neat previous owners inscriptions (dated 1878 and both to the same person) on the half titles of both volumes, minor foxing and creasing to some pages but otherwise these are both very good, clean copies in recent full deep red morocco bindings, gilt ruled borders on boards. Spines with raised bands, compartments decorated with gilt stamps of The Mad Hatter and playing cards. All edges gilt. Original publishers burgundy cloth boards and spines are bound into the back of each volume and show some rubbing and wear but are generally in fair condition. A very good attractive pair of books.
