Author(s): Lewis Carroll
Based on the original edition of Through the Looking-Glass Little Folks' Edition, a highlight of the Macmillan archive, this charming small format hardback is a companion to The Little Folks' Edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With red cloth binding, foil on the front cover and spine, and gold-sprayed edges to the pages, this is a really delightful gift, and specially abridged for younger readers to around one sixth the length of the original, it's a perfect introduction to the second of Carroll's classic Alice titles. This beautiful book is reproduced in full colour with over thirty original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.
A delightful gem from the Macmillan archive, republished in the original format.
Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, Dodgson was a mathematics tutor at Christ Church College, Oxford, where he met Alice Liddell, daughter of the dean, and inspiration for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The book and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, have delighted children the world over for 150 years. Sir John Tenniel was already a renowned cartoonist when he was invited to produce illustrations for Alice. His exquisite engravings are among the most iconic and best loved images in the world.
