Alice and the White Rabbit – Their Trips Round About London

Alice and the White Rabbit – Their Trips Round About London by Brenda Girvin.

Published by Partridge & Co, London, undated – ?1900? That’d be the first edition: not sure if this is that or a subsequent print. I think it’s probably not a first, as I’ve seen that described as having a blue cover. Hardback, no dustjacket.

Frontispiece and 7 full-page black and white illustrations, and 25 illustrations in the text, all by Evelyn Stuart Hardy. The cover is rather splendid too.

Hardy came from a family of artists (father, mother and two brothers) living in Bristol. Although known as Evelyn Stuart Hardy and commonly said to have been born in 1870, she was apparently actually born Beatrice Evelyn Elizabeth Hardy in 1865, but became younger with each census!

In the book, Alice and the Rabbit come to London and visit the Tower, the Zoo, Madame Tussaud’s, the Bank of England and others.

 

Sometimes available on Amazon: Alice and the White Rabbit.
