Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound pocket-sized gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
This edition of a favorite and much-loved title, previously illustrated in black and white, presents the illustrations in full color throughout. Original illustrations are faithfully reproduced, and have been sensitively colored by Barbara Frith, one of Britain's most accomplished colourists. When Alice tumbles down a rabbit hole one hot summer's afternoon in pursuit of a White Rabbit she finds herself in Wonderland. Wonderland is no ordinary place and the characters that populate it are quite unlike anybody young Alice has ever met. Through the Looking-Glass continues her bizarre adventures, and she meets more outlandish creations including the Red and the White Queens, Humpty Dumpty and the White Knight. Sir John Tenniel's magical illustrations have been delicately colored by Barbara Frith.

He was educated at Rugby School and then Christ Church, Oxford, where he was later appointed lecturer in mathematics and subsequently spent the rest of his life there. His most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) and The Hunting of the Snark (1876). He died, unmarried, in 1898.
