Alice in Silverland

Alice in Silverland: The Story and Trial of Alice, by Anne Lane.

Illustrations by Louis Farrar.

Published in 1939 by the International Silver Co, Meriden, Connecticut.

Softback- more of a pamphlet than a book. I think it’s an advertising thing, but I can’t find any info on-line. Any comments welcome!

Alice is put on trial for not using her cutlery correctly. She really does get into some strange situations, that Alice.

Characters include Danny Dinner Knife, Tiny Tea Spoon and Judge Carving Knife.

The drawings are charming little sketchy things, and Alice looks very young- pre Wonderland even…

Bought on abebooks.

Illustrated by Willy Pogany

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Willy Pogany.

Published by Dover (26 Jun 2009)

ISBN-10: 0486470482

ISBN-13: 978-0486470481

Modern paperback reproduction of the book published by E.P.Dutton and Co in 1929. Black and white pictures only.

William Andrew (“Willy”) Pogany was born Vilmos Andreas Pogány in 1882 in Szeged, Hungary. After studying in Budapest, Munich and Paris he spent time in London before going to the States. He remained there until his death on 30 July 1955.

As well as work as an illustrator for books and advertisements, he was art director for several Hollywood films.

From the back cover:

Generations of children have fallen down the rabbit hole with the little girl in the pinafore, to return again and again to Wonderland. Translated into more than one hundred languages, this captivating fantasy has enchanted readers of all ages around the world. This new edition of Alice’s adventures offers a fresh look at the time-honored tale, featuring an abundance of exuberant illustrations in the elegant style of Art Nouveau.
Willy Pogány, a prolific Hungarian-born artist best known for his illustrations of classic myths and legends, created these striking drawings in 1929. Pogány’s intricate black-and-white images retain the story’s playful spirit while injecting a zesty modern air to depictions of the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and other fantastical characters. This restoration of Pogány’s long out-of-print illustrations offers a fine introduction to a classic tale, as well as splendid addition to the collections of those already acquainted with Alice’s adventures.
