Octavo (185 × 125 mm). Bound by Maltby in burgundy morocco, titles and roll to bands gilt, single rule to boards blind, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Minor surface abrasion and paper repair to single leaf and small corner-piece missing to another leaf, some occasional foxing and browning, spine just a little faded, an excellent copy. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, and illustrations to text by John Tenniel. First published edition, and a beautifully bound copy. The publication of the first Alice book set a pattern for many of Dodgson's succeeding publications. The book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865. On 19 July 1865, Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator John Tenniel was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing, so decided to suppress the whole edition of 2,000 copies. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market. The unused Oxford sheets were sold to Appleton's for use in their New York edition, published the following summer. The Macmillan edition was published in an edition of 4,000 copies.
