A Christmas gift to a dear child

The Folio Society is offering a limited edition (only 3,750 copies!) of Alice’s Adventures under Ground, the original manuscript version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with Lewis Carroll’s own illustrations. While offered before by other publishers, this leather-bound edition seems to be reproduced from the original owned by the British Library, and is accompanied by “an illuminating companion booklet, in which Sally Brown, Curator of Modern Manuscripts at the British Library, traces the manuscript’s development, and explores Carroll’s friendship with Alice Liddell and her family. This 32-page companion booklet contains 17 illustrations, including photographs taken by Lewis Carroll.”

(By the way, I believe this is the same booklet…)
