"Through the Looking-Glass" is the sequel to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," and contains some of the most memorable scenes associated with Alice, including the Red Queen and the entire countryside laid out in the squares of a gigantic chessboard, the verses "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter", and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

The publication of "Through the Looking-Glass" in 1871 prompted deeper appreciation for the original book, cementing the literary legacy of the combined tale.

This beautiful edition features 7 full page color illustrations and an illustrated title page by Franklin Hughes. It was designed and printed by Richard W. Ellis for Cheshire House in an edition of 1,200 copies, of which this one is numbered 521 in blue pencil.
