CARROLL, Lewis. PHANTASMAGORIA AND OTHER POEMS. London: Macmillan and Co., 1869. First edition, second issue. Small octavo. viii,202 pp. Publisher's blue cloth binding, gilt-stamped title to spine and a decorative device within a double-rule frame on sides, brown coated endpapers, a.e.g. Publisher's announcement laid-down on ffep. ("By the same Author. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland...") and a bookseller's ticket ("Bound by Burn & Co.") on the rear pastedown. The binding is darkened on spine, with some minor wear at heel and crown, and shows general light soiling. Ffep. is detached, and the rear hinge is just starting; otherwise, internally, it is a clean and fresh. Very good overall. (Taylor 351).
