Reviewed in the United States on November 9, 2020
I started my love affair with Alice and Lewis Carroll's brilliant use of language when I was seven years old and my dad gave me my first copy of the books (I still have that copy, dad.). Through the years, I've aquired many different editions of Alice even copies illustrated by wonderful artists other than the great Tenniel. This particular edition of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and heart. In a beautiful slip-cover with happy Mad Tea Party art decorating it, and with the sumptuous large edition with many color illustrations (the best I've seen and I have at least 4 copies that have colorized Tenniel) the stories feel brand new. I started reading immediately and it took me back to that very first time I discovered my way into Carroll's masterpiece. This is a boon to anyone who loves Alice or collects fine books.
