First published edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with inverted “S” on final line of Contents. First edition, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass with misprint “wade” for “wabe” on p.21. Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was recalled by Dodgson, due to what he (or Tenniel) felt to be the unsatisfactory printing of Tenniel's illustrations, and was never offered for public sale. For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865 (though dated the following year). It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. Loker, Grolier Children’s 100, 35. (Item Id: 108687)
