Call for help: listing all English language editions

Last year, we created a reference work that lists all translations of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” all over the world: “Alice in a World of Wonderlands“. Now we embark on another project: listing all English language editions that were ever published, all over the world. And we need your help!

Do you know of any English language editions of these books?

  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there
  • Alice’s Adventures Under Ground
  • Nursery Alice

They can be printed books, but also eBooks, manuscripts, and online books. We are also looking for simplified or abridged editions, and combined volumes, as long as they are in the English language.

We are not looking for editions that combine an English text and a translated text of AAiW / TTLG, but if you know of any combined language editions of AAUG or Nursery Alice, we’d like to hear about it as well!

If you own / know one or more books described as above, please send us all details of them:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Illustrator
  • Publisher
  • City and country of publishing
  • Publishing date
  • Edition / issue
  • ISBN
  • Library that holds the edition (if applicable)
  • all other relevant details.


You can send any info you have to one of these addresses:

Jon Lindseth ([email protected]): editions published in the UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand

Lenny de Rooy ([email protected]): editions published in other countries

We very much appreciate your contribution!
