Lewis Carrolls Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass have captivated the imagination of adults and children alike since they first appeared more than a hundred years ago. Since that time many artists have attempted to capture their dreamlike combination of impossible events- precise detail and weird logic. Mervyn Peake is one of the few to have succeeded. Famed worldwide for his Gormenghast trilogy- Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator of rare and wondrous talent- whose editions of Treasure Island and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner are universally admired. In the 1940s- he was commissioned to produce a set of 70 pen-and-ink drawings to accompany Lewis Carrolls two classics- Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. They are among his best work as an illustrator. Unavailable in any edition since 1978- these extraordinary illustrations- many of which were drawn on poor quality wartime paper- have been restored to their former clarity and crispness by a combination of old-fashioned craft and the latest computer technology. They are now meticulously reproduced- for the first time- as they were meant to be seen.This exquisite two-volume set is the first edition to do justice to two great English eccentrics....
