Call for help: lisiting all English language editions

Postby Lenny » Wed Jun 15, 2016 11:25 am

I have volunteered to help with an ambitious project: listing all English language editions that were ever published, all over the world! And we need a lot of help from other Alice-lovers.

Do you own or know of an edition of the 'Alice' books in the English language? Please send us details of those editions.

For more information, see the post on my blog: http://www.alice-in-wonderland.net/blog ... -editions/

Thank you in advance for any info you can provide!

Holy moly! Now there's an ambitious undertaking

Maybe WorldCat can help

I'll see what I can do, if that will help. Most of my Alice books are in English. It isn't a large collection, though it could be larger than I remember.

Lenny, does the Rolen AAiW qualify as published? It's a free download from the forum. My son has plans to sell paper copies from his little web sales site, but he hasn't started yet.

It seems to me that David Lockwood (david-lockwood.co.uk) has been working on a project like this since 2007 as an Appendix to something called The Art of Alice. I recall that he said in an email that there are always more editions out there he just happens to find.

WorldCat will indeed be our starting point.

Treacle: was the 'Rolen' Alice ever officially published? If so, it will probably count as an 'online book'.

I do believe that it is impossible to get a complete list, without errors. But we can try as well as we can!

What a big project! I'll be happy to go through mine tomorrow, 20 something copies, not including a handful of abridged versions (I've been meaning to catalogue them for myself, so this is good motivation). :D

Do picture book versions count as abridged or are they out?

Forget my last comment. Comic books are not included in the bibliography, but someone is writing an essay about them so any info on them is welcomed as well.

Beautiful Soup: thank you! unfortunately the listings on the Pinterest board do not contain all necessary info.

I didn't really think a pinterest page would be terribly useful, but I thought you might like to contact Amanda Lastoria directly, as she seems to have the Canadian angle covered

None of mine are comic books, although, now that I say that I realize I have the Lelah Dowling version. All of mine are just simple children's ones.

Nearly done with my list...I have to hunt down some info for the brown/red leather ones that tend to confuse everyone.
