Rare Alice In Wonderland Books To Go On Display (For Just 4 Days)

A shop in Mayfair will display 69 rare works by Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll.

Bookseller Peter Harrington has been loaned the collection from the library of an anonymous English bibliophile, and will display them in his Dover Street shop for just four days.

Items going on display include the first published edition of Alice in Wonderland (1866) in original condition and a presentation copy inscribed to Rhoda Liddell, the sister of the girl who Alice was based upon.

Among other works of Carroll's on display are an unpublished acrostic poem and a first edition of the author's last novel Sylvie and Bruno.

The collection is being exhibited from 27-30 April at the Peter Harrington shop, 43 Dover Street, London W1S 4FF
