The Complete Alice Summary


The Complete Alice: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll

The Complete Alice, including both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, is the ultimate edition of Lewis Carroll's much-loved classic, from the original publisher, Macmillan. Packed full of amazing exclusive extra features from the Macmillan archive and a foreword by Philip Pullman, The Complete Alice also has a glorious die-cut cover with intricate embossed two foil detail, head and tail bands, red foiled edges and a ribbon marker - all making this a gift edition to treasure forever.

Lewis Carroll's Alice has been enchanting children for 150 years. Curious Alice, the bossy White Rabbit, the formidable Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter are among the best loved, most iconic literary creations of all time.

Macmillan was the original publisher of Alice in 1865 and is proud to remain true to the vision of its creators. This stunning anniversary treasury reproduces every word of Carroll's masterpiece and its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. The dreamlike illustrations, colour versions of Sir John Tenniel's originals, were produced in 1911 by celebrated artist Harry Theaker, under the direction of Tenniel himself, and the series completed by contemporary watercolourist Diz Wallis.

Curiouser and curiouser! Lively and authoritative non-fiction content draws on Macmillan's rich historical archive to tell the real-life story of how Alice was written and published, making this a perfect gift for fans of Alice young and old.

About Lewis Carroll


Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, Dodgson was a mathematics tutor at Christ Church College, Oxford, where he met Alice Liddell, daughter of the dean, and inspiration for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The book and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, have delighted children all over the world for 150 years.

Sir John Tenniel was already a renowned cartoonist when he was invited to produce illustrations for Alice. His exquisite engravings are among the most iconic and best loved images in the world.

Harry Theaker (1873-1954) was a celebrated Edwardian watercolour artist, illustrator of Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies.

Diz Wallis is a critically acclaimed contemporary watercolourist, with clients as varied as Royal Mail and Transport for London.
