dc.description.abstractI cannot believe the proliferation of distinct Tenniel editions! This one represents a wonderful gift. A quick check has already revealed several illustrations different from, but modeled on, the original 1848 illustrations. Are these illustrations that the publisher prevailed on Tenniel himself to change? Among them here are the frontispiece, The Old Hound (31), and The Countryman and the Snake (35). Or are the illustrations here only designed by Tenniel and frequently executed by someone else? A previous owner of this book wanted page numbers in the upper corner and so wrote them in when they were not there! The number of illustrations distinguishes this edition from every other one I have. James' title is as full here as it was in the original edition; it will become shorter in later reprints. Not in Lindseth. T of C at the beginning.en_US
