If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” 

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

 

Lewis Carroll’s landmark masterpiece, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,’ was first published in 1865. This fascinating fantasy tale of a young girl falling down a rabbit hole, is surely one of the most iconic pieces of literature for all time. It has been adapted into many different versions of film, most notably by Disney in 1951.

 

Through the Looking Glass’ was published a few years after the success of ‘Adventures in Wonderland’. While it was never as popular as ‘Alice’ it did include “the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language, the ‘Jabberwocky’” (Gardner).

 

A lovely 1872 edition of “Alice in Wonderland”, and “Through the Looking-Glass, and what Alice found there” featuring Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations including a charming cover board illustration. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations.
