The Annotated Alice, The Definitive Edition of 2 Lewis Carroll books, 2002
|Online Auction Description|
The Annotated Definitive Edition of the Alice books of Lewis Carroll was published in 2002 with notes collected from readers and scholars over many years. The original illustrations by John Tenniel are included. Introduction and Notes by Martin Gardner, an internationally recognized expert on the works of Lewis Carroll (including the mathematical treatises!)
New York and London: W.W.Norton & Company, hard cover quarto
An earlier Annotated Alice was published in 1960 by Clarkson Potter and in 1990, More Annotated Alice by Peter Newell. Notes, questions and suggestions kept pouring in, so the decision was made to publish another book of combined annotations. (Scholars and lovers of the Alice books do not expect this to be the final wordâ¦!)
In contrast to some of the earlier editions, the illustrations in this edition are sharp and clear, a beautiful book in and of itself. 150th Anniversary of the original appearance of Alice was Nov 26th, 2015.
The condition is excellent, no shelf wear. . The dust jacket is intact and the colors are richer than I have been able to capture in the photographs (my apologies).
There are some bonuses in this book - recently-discovered pencil sketches by Tenniel plus historical information such as a filmography and a list of TV productions.
The Alice books have always been beloved by children and their parents, studied by scholars and quoted by statesmen. Alice has appeared in just about every language you can think of - and then some. If you can read Lojban. Walloon or Zulu, you'll find a translation of an Alice book.
If you don't already have it, this special edition is for you! A thoughtful gift for an Alice admirer.
