Selections

THE LEWIS CARROLL PICTURE BOOK, ed. S. D. Collingwood (1899) —an entertaining miscellany.

ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, with forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel (1865) —the author stopped the publication of the first edition because he was dissatisfied with its production, and in consequence barely more than a dozen copies have survived.

Only French, Italian, German and Danish complete translations appeared in the author's lifetime.
