The illustrations were commissioned by Carroll from Henry Holiday, well known for his work as a painter and designer of stained glass. His drawings were transferred on to wood blocks and then engraved. The blocks were retained as masters from which electrotype plates were made: it was these plates which were then used for printing editions of the book.
This is a leather bound edition which in addition to the illustrations in the text, contains an extra set of prints.
