Illustrated by John Tenniel.

This is a facsimile of the first (1879) Russian translation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Only two copies of the original are known to exist. Neither author nor translator is mentioned in the book. The latter is believed to be Olga Ivanovna Timiriaseva, who had evidently corresponded with Carroll in 1871.
