Through The Looking Glass: contest closed

Only one book in today's giveaway, but it's a neat one, and an edition I don't come across often:




Part of the "Wonderland Series," this is Lewis Carroll's "Through The Looking Glass" - rewritten for children (abridged and edited a bit). This has the Tenniel illustrations in black and white, as well as six color plates. It was published by The Hayes Lithographing Co. of Buffalo, NY somewhere around 1910. It's a a bit worn, but the pages inside are in good shape, even if the binding isn't.

Giveaway has ended.
