London: Macmillan and Co., 1875 & 1872. London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1875 & 1872. 2 works, octavo (177 x 120 mm). Finely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in Mid-20th-century red crushed morocco, titles and motifs to spines gilt, raised bands, sides bordered with double gilt ruled, gilt roll of the four playing card suits to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. With wood-engraved illustrations by John Tenniel throughout. Spines a little sunned with a few very minor scuffs and marks, otherwise an excellent set. First edition of Through the Looking-Glass, beautifully bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe together with an early edition of Alice in Wonderland (first published 1865, this copy from the 47th thousand, printed 1875). The Alice books earned the author "a place in the firmament of the great, for they are not only acts of imaginative genius but they also revolutionized writing for children" (ODNB).
