NURSERY ALICE


NURSERY ALICE

LEWIS CARROLL & SIR J. TENNIEL    Book Number: 87543    Product format: Hardback

A colourful trip down the rabbit hole to the fantastical world of cards, twins and talking animals: The Nursery Alice was the first colour edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It includes every word of the original edition and the original advertisement. Importantly, it also restores the delicacy of Tenniel's illustrations as well as the iconic cover illustration by Emily Gertrude Thomson which depicts Alice asleep under a tree beside an open book, watched over by the white rabbit with a fan, a pig in a bonnet, a dormouse and a gryphon and mock turtle. The book is an enchanting introduction to the story for young readers. Carroll rewrote and simplified the original story and the twenty colourful images encourage engagement with the chaotic tale. Admire the still of Bill, the lizard leaping from the chimney and the encounter between the white rabbit and Alice. Discover the Cheshire Cat and its lingering smile which are pictured in detail, Alice conversing with a caterpillar and his hookah, and catch the cards painting the white roses red before the Queen of Hearts notices. The story is also preceded by the poem 'A Nursery Darling' and the 'Preface: addressed to any mother' and, at the end, the reader will also find 'An Easter Greeting: to every child who loves "Alice"' and 'Christmas Greetings: from a fairy to a child' in which the young reader will be able to read prose and poetic addresses from Lewis Carroll himself. This is a book for both adults and children alike which paints a technicolour image of Carroll's topsy turvy world. 6½"x8", colour illustrations, 66pp.
