A few years ago, there was a lovely little exhibition about Alice's Adventures at the British Library in London. It really showed how iconic Lewis Carroll's book had been across the decades and how inspiring it had been to so many illustrators, who have kept putting their very own stamp on the little girl's fantastic adventures in Wonderland.
Unfortunately, this is not a copy of the first edition (look online, the prices are eye-wateringly high!) - it is possible that I would have sold it!
Still, this is a very nice 1907 volume published by John Lane - The Bodley Head and it seems to be pretty rare too!
The wonderful illustrations are by the American artist William Henry Walker.
I think therefore I write.
