*Childrens’ Books: Lewis Carroll’s Alice books have woven a spell of enchantment over both children and adults now for over 150 years, and she’s a firm favourite here at 30th Century as well. Added new to our Alice inventory this week is a slender volume comprising an abridged version of Alice Through the Looking Glass published in the 1950s by Mellifont Press and illustrated by an uncredited artist after Tenniel; in solid, very good condition with a dot-to-dot on inside front cover and crossword on rear partially completed in pencil. Already on our shelves are a handsome 1933 Oxford University Press hardback edition of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland with pictorial boards and colour plates by A E Jackson, and the 1974 Puffin paperback of both Alice books which reproduces all the original classic Tenniel illustrations.
