Overview

Alice in a World of Wonderlands: The English-Language Editions of the Four Alice Books Published Worldwide is a two-volume set; this is Volume 1 (Essays and Illustrations). Volume 2 (Checklists and Appendices) is available separately. This is a companion to the 2015 three-volume Alice in a World of Wonderlands: Translations of Lewis Carroll's Masterpiece.

Jon A. Lindseth and Arnold Hirshon edited these volumes that explore the legacy of the four Alice books: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, Alice's Adventures under Ground, and The Nursery "Alice."

Volume 1 contains essays by distinguished scholars about both the publishing history of the four books (by Francine F. Abeles, Mark Burstein, George Cassady, Morton N. Cohen, Martin Gardner, Selwyn Goodacre, Edward Guiliano, August A. Imholtz, Jr., Stephanie Lovett, Heather Simmons, and Daniel Rover Singer) and about the history of their many illustrated editions (by Mark Burstein, George Cassady, Michael Everson, and Arnold Hirshon).

Volume 2, available separately, contains ten checklists of the four books documenting the chronological and geographic history of their publication in the United Kingdom, the United States, other English-language countries (Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand), and 29 countries in the rest of the world. This volume also contains short discussions about publication and illustration trends since the first published edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 1865, as well as publisher and illustrator indexes to all of the checklist entries.
