Description

The Nursery “Alice” brings the classic story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to the youngest of readers, with all the beauty and all the silliness of the original. The English Rose edition: Sir John Tenniel’s original illustrations have been exceptionally improved and coloured in The Nursery “Alice” making the book all the more attractive and inspiring to younger audiences. Each character is beautifully drawn and described, as Alice wends her way through Wonderland, and the language is especially adapted so that it is easy for young children to understand. This English Rose edition is a high quality, beautiful piece with enhanced images, clear formatting and loving attention to detail. English Rose love books and think that every one is special, so our editions will always be distinctive, professional and unique.

The History of “Alice”: The story of Alice first appeared in print as a manuscript entitled Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, written by Lewis Carroll between 1862-4 and featuring illustrations by the author. It was rewritten and published as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) in 1865 with illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. The Nursery “Alice” was first published in 1890, 25 years after the original Alice. Rewritten by Carroll, it included 20 of Tenniel’s original illustrations enlarged and coloured, and was the first colour edition of any Alice book. It also featured a new cover illustrated by E. Gertrude Thomson.
