Illustrated by Harry Rountree

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Harry Rountree.

Published by Collins, date not known, but I think 1925. Small hardback book, no dustjacket.

Harry Rountree  came to London from New Zealand in 1901. He was 23 years old when he arrived, and he initially struggled. However, by the time he illustrated Alice (in 1908) he was a success. He re-visited Alice in 1925.

I bought this for a fiver as I like the Jabberwock who looks like a rabid guinea pig…

Illustrated by A.H. Watson

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, illustrated by A.H.Watson.

Published by Collins in 1956. Inscription on the flyleaf dated 1957.

Hardbound: cloth boards, with no dustjacket.

I love the cover of this with the surrounding lists of characters protecting Alice in the middle.

Illustrations are a mixture of black and white text inclusions, and colour plates.
