For over 125 years John Tenniel''s superb illustrations for Alice''s Adventures in Wonderland have been the perfect complement to Lewis Carroll''s timeless story.

This edition is a wonderful high-quality version, the first to reproduce Tenniel''s exquisite drawings from prints taken directly from the original wood engravings. Here, Tenniel''s fine line work is far crisper, delicate shadings are reproduced with more subtlety, and details never seen before are now visible.

This is a deluxe gift edition with clearer, more detailed images than have ever been seen before. At last, readers can see the Alice that Carroll and Tenniel had originally envisioned.
