In Search of Alice: Being the Adventures of William in Underland

In Search of Alice: Being the Adventures of William in Underland by Guy Bousfield. Published by C. & J. Temple, London.

Hard Cover. 8vo. First Edition?: not dated, but pencil inscription on the fly-leaf says 1952, which is the year of publication.

Illustrations by B. Biro.

This is a new storybook rather than a spoof or satire, featuring William’s (Bill’s) search for, and adventures with, the original Alice. Reintroduces many old friends from the original, including the Duchess, the Hare, Hatter and the Dormouse, the caterpillar and the White Queen, who rather charmingly cries ivory tears.

New characters include:

  • The Goopher
  • The Owl
  • The Kangaroo
  • The Beefeater

Bought on abebooks, 2008
