With four color, glossy illustrations from John Watson Davis and uncountable b&w illustrations, this "Adventures in Wonderland" combined with "Through the Looking Glass" is a choice volume. There is no publication date in the book, experts place it at 1904. No dust jacket. The red textured cloth boards with black decoration are rubbed at the corners and at the base/crown of the spine, very clean otherwise. There is a small name sticker on the inside front cover, the interior is spotless otherwise.

This is a great classic! Children and adults have loved this book as it has many layers and meanings. I love reading it over and over, always getting something new and different each time. I think everyone can enjoy this book; kids and adults. The meaning one retrieves from this classic depends on what path or where one is on their individual journey in life.
In 1969 Random House produced a limited run of Alice in Wonderland with 12 wild and colorful heliogravures by surrealist artist Salvador Dali. They issued 2500 standard editions and 500 deluxe editions of the book, charging $375 retail for the standard edition. Copies of the standard edition in good condition now sell for thousands of dollars.
This edition reproduces the original Lewis Carroll text with nice reproductions of the Dali illustrations at a price everyone can afford. The additional material by Carrollian expert Mark Burstein and by a mathematician friend of Dali, Thomas Banchoff, add to the value of owning this edition of Alice no matter how many other versions you may already have.
This publishing of Alice in Wonderland has the worst formatting on the planet. It's as though they turned it over to my 9 year old niece, let her loose on Microsoft Wordpad, and told her to have at it. The top line of text on most pages is crammed right up under the author/chapter line, each new chapter starts just in any ol' nonsensical place, and there's big chunks of blankness peppered throughout. It makes my eyelashes and toenails hurt it's so bad. I'm now off to eBay to buy an older, proper publishing.
