London: Macmillan and Co, 1872. First edition. Very Good +. A beautiful set, bound in the early 20th century by Baytnun in full red crushed levant morocco with raised bands on the spine and intricate gilt detailing. Inlaid leather figures of a rabbit trumpeter on the first book and Alice with a deer on the second. Marbled endpapers, morocco doublures with inlaid marbled paper; all edges gilt; silk markers; and original cloth laid down on final pages of each volume. Darkening to both spines and some wear along outer hinges, some boards secured. "Alice in Wonderland" states "Thirteenth Thousand" on the title page, with discoloration to first few pages, otherwise clean, and fresh. "Through the Looking Glass" is a clean, fresh First Edition with "wade" for "wabe" on p. 21 and one page of publisher's ads following the story. A fantastic combination of fine bindings with one of the best-loved children's story ever written. Often found rebound in relatively inexpensive modern bindings, this sumptuous set stands the test of time. Additional photos available upon request. Very Good +.
