Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

£65.00

Product description

This much-loved children's classic needs no introduction, having been in continuous print since its appearance in 1865. Indeed, copies of the same date as this example are numbered at least 'in the 98th thousand'!

Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) (1832-1898) was an English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer, best-known for his 'Alice' books and the mysterious poem tale 'The Hunting of the Snark'. His life and works remain even today a source of intense interest to researchers in many fields, including his main occupation in life - mathematics, on which subject he lectured for many years at Oxford, Christ Church.

Our copy was produced in 1932, to mark the centenary of the author's birth, and is in good condition for its age, bound in red cloth with gilt title etc to the spine and gilt top page edges. A few small stains on the back cover, and some slight fading of the spine and light bumping of the corners are the only signs of shelf wear. Endpapers are clean and intact, and the binding is firm with no loose pages. The 42 Tenniel illustrations complete the volume. A very nice copy.
