The book:  Rare first American edition of Sowerby's illustrations for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Sowerby was among the earliest women to illustrate Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland! Sowerby's illustrations bring new life to the fantastical world of Wonderland, making this edition a prized possession for collectors and admirers of both Carroll and Sowerby.

The author: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English writer, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, which includes the poem "Jabberwocky", and the poem The Hunting of the Snark – all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his ability to use wordplay, logic, and fantasy. There are societies in many parts of the world dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his life.

The illustrator: Amy Millicent Sowerby (1878–1967) was an English painter and illustrator, known for her illustrations of classic children's stories such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and A Child's Garden of Verses, her postcards featuring children, nursery rhymes, and Shakespeare scenes, and children's books created with her sister Githa Sowerby. Sowerby was among the earliest women to illustrate Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, originally published in 1865. In 1907, the book entered the public domain in the United Kingdom, and that year at least eight new editions were published, with Sowerby's being the first of the new lot to appear.
