About This Item

London: Macmillan and Co, 1872. Hardcover. Good. First edition. Illustrated by John Tenniel. 12mo. 224pp. Handsomely rebound in polished red leather elaborately gilt by Bartlett & Co., Boston, with their signature on the verso of the front flyleaf (a tiny chip causing a bit of loss to the name). All edges gilt. Boards separated with the corners worn through, small dampstain on the lower board with corresponding staining (and a tiny chip) on the rear flyleaf, spine toned and with loss, a good only copy; the text is fine. From the noted Lewis Carroll collection of Philip Conklin Blackburn, with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Blackburn was an editor of the 1934 anthology *Logical Nonsense*, considered by Carroll scholar Charlie Lovett to be the first serious attempt to anthologize Lewis Carroll's works. Blackburn also cataloged the important Carroll collection of Morris L. Parrish, now at Princeton. An excellent association.
