A first edition of ‘Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there’ is being offered for sale. The copy is special, because it contains two original pencil drawings from the illustrator, John Tenniel.
The copy bears pencil sketches of Humpty Dumpty on the wall and Alice holding a fawn. The images are reversed, in imitation of what Tenniel would have drawn on the wood for the engraving process. There’s also an inscription with Tenniel’s monogram and the line “Ever yours”.
