Illustrated by Gordon Robinson

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Illustrated by Gordon Robinson.

Published by Charles H. Kelly, London in 1916. Hardback, no dustjacket, but rather a pretty cover- art nouveau/arts and craft-ish.

I have been unsuccessful in finding anything at all out about the artist responsible for the illustraions. If anyone could help, I’d be grateful.

    I have the same book (almost the same…the front cover features that full colour illustration of the cook and the sneezing baby), and today (March 13th) I was hunting for information about Gordon Robinson and found your posting. Other sites mention Gordon Robinson as illustrating Alice in Wonderland in 1916 (as your and my books are dated) BUT the illustrations are completely different! Were there TWO Gordon Robinsons illustrating Alice in the same year? How weird!

      He’s certainly elusive… most illustrators are much easier to pin down. Maybe it’s a common pseudonym for people dissatisfied with their work- like Alan Smithee listed as director of dodgy films. Thing is, the pictures are rather good, so I suspect that’s not the case ;)

    Hi,I was searching for biographical information about this illustrator myself too and could not find even the year of his birth. But he was almost surely alive and kickin’ in 1930s when at least half a dozen of his works was published, including Mother Goose and Tom Thumb. Maybe one of his publishing houses knows more about him?
