What makes this edition better than the average copy of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" is that it features the celebrated, rarely-seen illustrations originally penned by Meryn Peake for a 1940's printing of the "Alice" books.
Mervyn Peake is remembered as the author of the "Gormenghast" fantasy novels, as well as for his fine illustriations of classics like the "Alice" books and "Treasure Island." In my opinion, his illustrations are more unique, artistic, and magical than John Tenniel's drawings for the first editions of Lewis Carroll's works, with which we are all more familiar.
If you a looking to purchase a copy of "Alice" to put on your bookshelf, I definitely recommend this one.
Works great with the 1/3 scale dolls as props for photoshoots and display pieces.
This edition includes both "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass"
