By Anna Matlack Richards (1835–1900)

A New Alice features Alice Lee, an American girl with a coincidental name, visiting Wonderland and meeting all the characters she knows from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The book was “an expanded version of the stories the author had invented for her young children, to whom the novel is dedicated, about their favorite storybook world.”

Illustrations by the author’s daughter, Anna Richards Brewster (1870–1952), have been omitted due to copyright restrictions.
