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.

Alice in Candyland, with apologies to Lewis Carroll.

No credit for author or illustrations.

Undated.

Advertising pastiche for Lowney’s candies. Red and black illustrations. Stapled pamphlet.

Lowney’s began in the US in the late 1800s, moved to Canada in the 1960s, and was later bought out by Hershey’s Chocolates. This is a Canadian advertising pamphlet for the brand and mentions products such as Cherry Blossom, Cracker Jack, and Oh Henry! (Really Big). Blimey. Alice visits the factory in Sherbrooke, Quebec and learns how choclolate is made.

Alice took a step forward and gasped. The floor was soft, white and springy.

“Made from Angelus TenderWhip Marshmallows”, said the rabbit, as if it was the most natural thing in the world.

Bought from Canada from the really friendly and charming Stephen Temple Books.
