I already have two expensive editions of Alice, including the older DLE with the Rackham illustrations, but Mamma Mia! That Art!

I think you’ll need a third one. Beautiful art, and 17 illustrations in a 160 page book is much better than most illustrated books today.

As beautiful and well-made as this new one will be, there is no way it can outclass W. W. Norton’s 150th anniversary deluxe edition of “The Annotated Alice,” containing all of Martin Gardner’s marvelous notes for both “Wonderland” and “Looking-Glass.” It also contains all of Tenniel’s original illustrations as well as more than 100 illustrations by 40 or so artists including Salvador Dali and Beatrix Potter. And because it isn’t fine press (or anything close to it), it is very inexpensive.

>4 jroger1: I have that one, too! lol (And a bunch of other annotated editions of great works, to boot.)

But I will still probably buy this for its own charms.

My goto Alice is the fine press edition by The Press of A. Colish. It has the Tenniel illustrations, beautiful paper and cover, and I got it at an insanely wonderful price. Here are some pics -
disclaimer - I have no connection with the seller, just posting the link because they took good pictures!

>6 astropi:. Absolutely beautiful edition you have. I have 1871 edition of Alice with Tenniels illustrations and 1872 through the looking glass.
