Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
New York, D. Appleton & Co.,, 1866. Octavo, pp. [x] + 192. Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe / Zaehnsdorf in recent burgundy full morocco, title and decorations to spine gilt, triple line rule and centre block to boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, green endpapers, all edges gilt, original front cover bound in at the back. With frontispiece and 42 illustrations by John Tenniel. A very good clean copy in a beautiful binding. Ownership name to half-title, bookplate to front pastedown. First edition, second issue. This is the first obtainable issue 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.
