There are many editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, but none to rival The Complete Alice, a gorgeous new gift book celebrating one hundred and fifty years of Alice.
In 1865, Macmillan published the first edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, widely acknowledged as one of the most influential children’s books of all time. Its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.
The Complete Alice brings together Lewis Carroll’s two extraordinary stories in a single glorious volume. The original artwork has been lovingly restored. Both texts are complete and unabridged, including the rarely seen “deleted” episode The Wasp in a Wig. Also included is The Story of Alice, an exclusive sixteen-page account of the creation and first publication of Alice, told for younger readers and featuring material from Macmillan’s rich historical archive. A foreword from Philip Pullman introduces this truly special gift edition.
This beautiful hardback edition was published to celebrate 150 years of Alice’s adventures and being the original publishers, Macmillan has put several special features into this edition. It comes with the original Tenniel illustrations but this time in full colour. A great addition to any collection.
