Alice in Dreamland

Alice in Dreamland by Seymour Lyman.

Published by Lyman & Curtiss, 1882.

First edition. 4to. Paper covers, all a bit tatty and very fragile. I’m scared to take it out of its protective bag, but I think I really ought to scan the whole thing before it disintegrates…

I can’t find out anything about this one-this is what the listing on abebooks said:

There are fourteen pages within including six full page color plates (one double page) for this imaginative story in verse that takes Alice around the world. This title not in Lovett; not in Library of Congress; and not listed in oclc. In fact, lc only shows one entry for this publisher and it seems likely that the Seymour Lyman author is also the Lyman of the publisher. They also seemed to have published a few games around the same time (circa 1882) so probably they were a short-lived enterprise that did some interesting work and then went on with their lives? All in all, probably an unrecorded Alice parody that is really fun.

Bought from Jo Ann Reisler Ltd via abebooks.
