Round Fairyland with Alice

Round Fairyland with Alice by Brenda Girvin.

Illustrated by W. Lindsay Cable.

Published by Wells Gardner Darton, 1948. First edition thus (originally published 1916 as Round Fairyland with Alice and the White Rabbit). Hardback cloth boards. No dustjacket. 16mo

All the contents and title pages underlined in felt pen, and chapter headings ticked. Shame.
Alice and the White Rabbit tour Fairyland with the ‘Professor’ and learn about the fairies and folklore of England, Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. They meet Queen Mab, pixies, mermaids, Red Men and Cluricane.

You can pick it up for under £25 on amazon: Round fairyland with Alice

The illustrations are lovely, and rather variable in style. I’ll try and scan more in, but here’s one for now:
