The illustrator is the very famous Margaret W. Tarrant... First Edition was published by Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd.: London, 1916. Book should have 48 coloured plates and no B&W illustrations.

I don't know if your edition is a first or not. My copy is an undated third edition... Cover is different from yours having inset paper plate of Alice at the Tea Party with Hatter, Dormouse & Hare... Green cloth boards... 4-color interior lined boards... Frontispiece is Alice being 'attacked': "The Whole pack rose up into the air and came flying down upon her."... 332 Pages (not including additional ads)

Tarrant illustrations are charming, no?... And far less threatening than most Alice illustrations. Ms. Tarrant truly had the minds and hearts of children in mind when she recreated the characters.

Remember me? We met when Ben played the OWR a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had a chance to visit your shop yet but I'm looking to pop over in the Easter holiday.

Nice site. Lots of good stuff for sale. I'll bring my credit card. :)

BTW There's an error in your site link. You have accidentally included the comma at the end of it as part of the link so that it doesn't work properly.

Thanks Rachel AIW:-)

List of illustrators (a lot of broken links though)

And last but not least quite possibly the weirdest Alice site on the internet.

Of course most of these have links to other sites that have links to other sites and so on.

That must be the most insane depiction of AIW I've seen yet. o.o

Although I'm terrified (lmao), I must give my compliments to Claw Theatre. It must have taken a long time to put that together, and the art is fantastic.

A cat dressed up as a cat strikes me as extremely silly. :p

Claw Theater is definitely more than a bit strange...oddly engaging though. Cats dressed as cats makes sense when you consider that human actors wear costumes of other humans.

Thanks for the links :)
