About the Author
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 - 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and a photographer. His most famous writings are "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and its sequel "Through the Looking-Glass," as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky," all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy. Sir John Tenniel (28 February 1820 - 25 February 1914) was a British illustrator, graphic humourist and political cartoonist whose work was prominent during the second half of England's 19th century. Tenniel is considered important to the study of that period's social, literary, and art histories. He was knighted by Queen Victoria for his artistic achievements in 1893. Tenniel is most noted for two major accomplishments: he was the principal political cartoonist for England's Punch magazine for over 50 years, and he was the artist who illustrated Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass."

The book is a hot pink colour and made with Leather ensuring it will last a long time if you take care of it. I love the fact the fore-edge of the book is plated with gold colours making it look so elegant. Inside there are again illustrations by High D'adnrade and of course the original illustrations which I've grown to know and love. The special edition also has its own lovely gold bookmark ribbon, you can never really go wrong with those.
It's a lovely buy and this special edition would make a great present for any book or alice in wonderland lover.
An added bonus is that it not only comprises the well known and loved Alice novels but 'Sylvie and Bruno' and 'Sylvie and Bruno Concluded', regrettably without the Harry Furniss illustrations as originally published in 'Aunt Judy's Magazine (1867); 'A Tangled Tale', again without Arthur Frost's orignal illustrations for the original collected edition in book form - the orginal stories were published serially in the 'The Monthly Packet' from 1880 - 85; various other assorted writings including Carroll's take on the good old fashioned Victorian ghost story, and a brief but informative introduction by Amanda Kirk.
In short, thoroughly recommended!
This is an indulgent gift for all and any "Alice in Wonderland" fans (and/or bibliophiles). Seriously, look no further and get this opulent leather bound copy of Alice's adventures (and other stories!) NOW.
This tome not only looks and feels opulent (from the leather cover to the golden-edged pages), it is also a great value-for-money tome, it includes all the adventures of Alice, loads of stories and interpretations and notes for committed Lewis Carroll enthusiasts.
Barnes & Noble are re-publishing classics, but this time in a lovely leather-bound hardbacks, and I I am so glad they have done so! For a true book lover, the appeal and visual presentation of the book is just right (the stories within contain the original illustrations by celebrated John Tenniel). The book looks great and opulent (and is quite heavy!), and I imagine it would look good as part of the collection, but it can also be an individual gem on anybody's shelf. The design is simple and stylish, the paper is of good quality (the type size is about 10), the book even has a ribbon book mark!
This would make a great book for either a curious child, a Lewis Carroll lover or a bibliophile. Wholeheartedly recommended.
