The classic tale of that ever-curious little girl who tumbled down a rabbit hole into Wonderland has enchanted readers for nearly 140 years. Today, Alice and the eccentric creatures that she meets-the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter-continue to be among the most-loved characters in all literature. This deluxe facsimile of a rare edition, illustrated by beloved artist Arthur Rackham, is a sumptuous celebration of this timeless story. Painted with the dreamlike watercolors and subtle detail that brought Rackham international fame, the book's thirteen elegant full-color plates and fourteen black-and-white drawings make this a delightful keepsake for readers of all ages.

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.
For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story.
