Friday Giveaway: Alice and Looking Glass - contest closed

As promised, I'm giving away these two antiquarian Lewis Carroll books:


"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was published by the Homewood Publishing company, circa 1900. "Through The Looking Glass" was published by Donohue, circa 1904. Both feature the Tenniel illustrations inside.

"Looking Glass" is in better condition overall, but both books are heavily worn. I'm hoping they find a new home with an owner that doesn't mind these flaws.

Contest now closed, winner announced shortly.

I love the red colour of Alice's clothes, so different from the later blue. I would love to be considered - fond memories of reading Alice, up a tree, with a bag of apples!
