This stunning anniversary treasury reproduces every word of Carroll's masterpiece and its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. The dreamlike illustrations, colour versions of Sir John Tenniel's originals, were produced in 1911 by celebrated artist Harry Theaker, under the direction of Tenniel himself, and the series completed by contemporary watercolourist Diz Wallis. Curiouser and curiouser! Lively and authoritative non-fiction content draws on Macmillan's rich historical archive to tell the real-life story of how Alice was written and published, making this a perfect gift for fans of Alice young and old.
