Alice Through The Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll (Hardcover)

*Other than an inscription and a little wear to the dust jacket, this book is in excellent vintage condition- beautifully and uniquely illustrated!

In 1865, English author CHARLES LUTWIDGE DODGSON (1832-1898), aka Lewis Carroll, wrote a fantastical adventure story for the young daughters of a friend. The adventures of Alice-named for one of the little girls to whom the book was dedicated-who journeys down a rabbit hole and into a whimsical underworld realm instantly struck a chord with the British public, and then with readers around the world. In 1872, in reaction to the universal acclaim *Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland* received, Dodgson published this sequel. Nothing is quite what it seems once Alice journeys through the looking-glass, and Dodgson’s wit is infectious as he explores concepts of mirror imagery, time running backward, and strategies of chess-all wrapped up in the exploits of a spirited young girl who parries with the Red Queen, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and other unlikely characters. In many ways, this sequel has had an even greater impact on today’s pop culture than the first book.

Please note that these are second hand books and have probably passed through a number of hands in their lifetime.This is part of the charm for me, but for some it may be less so.
You can expect to find some general page discolouration, some creases in the spine and occasionally cover, the odd smudge or perhaps an inscription in the front. Condition will vary from book to book, but this will be reflected in the price and images.
Any major damage such as loose pages, tears, scribbling throughout the body of the book or missing dust jackets will be mentioned.
