My place & yours : My collection





Alice in Wonderland books!

I don't know how many I have and I don't really go out of my way to buy them, just as and when I come across them!
I love the story and the imagery and how each illustrator has a different take on the words.

This is one of my oldest, 1914, I love the advertising in the opening pages for shredded suet and boot polish!

See more lovely collections at Meet me at Mikes!

  1. What a lovely collection, and who doesn't love a "handy suet".

  2. Nice collection. I have never read Alice & last year we bought it for us big people to read. I might just have to wait until the little one is a bit bigger & read it to him. Then I can enjoy it at the same time, & all the surprises that may come with it. I can't wait till the day I can read him stuff like that.

  5. Oh I so love your book collection , especially the Alice ones. I have been searching high and low for my old Alice book that I had as a child but haven't been able to find it...I really love Alice and can't wait for the new movie to come out. I have also got a little Alice collection of jewellery in my etsy store :0)
