Illustrations from Alice Through the Looking-Glass, or, the proper title, Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There, by Lewis Carroll, With fifty illustrations by John Tenniel; London, 1871; my copy is later, 1935. I have not yet scanned all 50 illustrations.

The illustrations, along with those from Alice In Wonderland, helped to make John Tenniel famous; less well-known is that the pictures were engraved (in order to print them) onto wood by the Dalziel brothers.
