This is an attractive later printing of the Through the Looking-Glass (1871), the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865).
The volume includes such remarkable characters as "Humpty Dumpty" and "Tweedledum and Tweedledee" as well as memorable verses like "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter"--here illustrated in an appealing frontispiece.
No date on copyright page. Mary Brooks illustrated one edition of Through the Looking Glass for Ward Lock, but we cannot confidently name her as the unnamed illustrator.
Overall, a VERY GOOD copy in the SCARCE dust jacket of this appealing edition! Tight copy with sound hinges and binding; cover is quite clean with slight wear; very good corners and spine ends. Generally clean pages with light age-tanning and moderate foxing to page edges. Slightly cocked.
Dust jacket has very good color and completeness; some soil and moderate wear with nicks to edges andmodest losses to head and foot of spine.
