We’re all mad here in Special Collections - mad about this Pennyroyal Press edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland! The book was designed and illustrated with wood-engravings by print-maker Barry Moser. Our copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was part of a deluxe set, including an additional suite of over 100 wood-engravings signed by Moser. 

Special Collections recently received the latest installment of a multi-year gift from New York collector Jerry Buff. This latest donation of over 1550 books consists mainly of fine-press and deluxe publications, considerably augmenting our collections of several American, British, and German private presses, as well as the work of important designers, publishers, and pressman. We are delighted that the donation included a number of Pennyroyal Press editions, including Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

IT’S FOLLOW A LIBRARY DAY!! (according to Twitter)

In honor of this excellent bookish occasion, allow us to give special shout outs to all of the libraries that we have followed and/or have followed us here on Tumblr. For all of you bookworms and library cats out there that can’t get enough Booklrs, make sure to check these pages out and #followalibrary!!
