Comparing Covers is a new feature on Lampshade Reader. I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions to re-releases.
Alice in Wonderland aka Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll has been re-released countless times with different illustrations and covers. It’s always interesting to see what new cover art it receives because there is just so many variations to choose from. Alice, of course is always featured. Today, I’m going to showcase some of my favorite ones because let’s face it, there are over 3000 covers and there is no way I’m going to display all of those!
Finding some of the first editions for this book was hard, but I did find one that was released in 1866 (The book was originally published in 1865). It is gorgeous and hands down my favorite. I found this on manhattanrarebooks.com.
Goodness knows how much it’s worth…
