Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
New York: D. Appleton and Co.,, 1866. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. Octavo (187 × 125 mm). Early 20th-century red cloth, titles to spine and single-line rules to boards gilt. Housed in a red morocco slipcase and chemise. Frontispiece and illustrations throughout by John Tenniel. Spine toned, cloth lightly rubbed at extremities, spotting to contents. A very good copy. First edition, second issue: the first practically obtainable issue of the original sheets, with the Appleton cancel title page. Macmillan printed around 2,000 copies of the book in 1865, but both artist and author were unhappy with the poor quality printing and insisted it was reprinted before being published. Only two dozen or so copies of the 1865 first issue exist: Macmillan sold the rest of the print run to Appleton in New York who published a US edition using a new title page but with the first printing sheets from the London edition.
