Description: (CHILDREN'S LITERATURE.) CARROLL, LEWIS [Dodgson, Charles Lutwidge]. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. 42 illustrations by John Tenniel.

New York: Appleton, 1866
Notes: first american edition, comprising sheets of the suppressed 1865 first English printing with a new title-page. Poor printing quality forced Carroll to cancel the first edition published by Macmillan in London. He decided, however, to sell the unbound sheets to Appleton in the United States. Those 1000 volumes were bound in England, with a new title-page printed by the Clarendon Press bearing Appleton's name and dated 1866. Williams, Madan, Green 44; Avery 6.
