Ethel’s Adventures in the Doll Country

Ethel’s Adventures in the Doll Country by Clara Bradford.

Illustrated by T. Pym, with 6 colour plates and smaller black and white illustrations in text.

Published by John F.Shaw & Co (48 Paternoster Row), 1880.

Hardback, no dustjacket. Red embossed boards with gilding.

Listed in Alternative Alices: Visions and Revisions of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’ Books
as an Alice imitation.

Ethel loses her favourite doll, and on going to bed sees her toys running off to the Doll Country. Of course, she follows them…

This book seems to come in a variety of colours: my red, but I’ve also seen blue and green versions on-line.

I’m not sure if that’s related to date- my copy seems to be undated.

T. Pym is apparently the pseudonym of 19th-century children’s illustrator Clara Creed. She has also illustrated The Snow Queen.

I can’t find out anything about the author.

There’s a modern facsimile available on Amazon if you want to read the book: Ethel’s Adventures: In the Doll Country (Facsimile)
..or you can try and find an original: Ethel’s Adventures In The Doll Country
