Subject: RE: Lyr Req: childish sailing song (perhaps)
Thanks, LadyJean, you are correct. Checking available copies, used copies of a 1988 reprint available from $5 to $20, with new illus. by G. Hildebrandt and Bacharach. Original illus. by E. B. Bensell, late editions reasonable, Ist Ed. 1st issue,in "good" condition, $400, dated 1985; actual release date was 1886 according to one dealer.
The subtitle was "What Followed Reading "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," which undoubtedly contributed to the confusion with Lewis Carroll's "Alice."
