Carroll, Lewis [i. e. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]. The Game of Logic.

London, Macmillan & Co., 1887.

8vo. (12), 96 pp., 2 ff. of publisher's advertisements. With game board frontispiece and several text illustrations. Contemporary red full cloth with giltstamped title to cover and spine.


First trade edition. With the loosely inserted customary envelope containing a game card and 9 tiles (5 gray, 4 pink) required to play the "game of logic". The envelope bears the date of the privately printed 1886 first edition. As Dodgson was not satisfied with the first issue, initially intended to be printed in an edition of 500 copies, it was suppressed.

Extremities lightly bumped, spine slightly sunned, minor edgewear, a few spots of soiling to the boards. Internally clean and tight, all edges trimmed; minor intermittent foxing. Envelope somewhat foxed and thumb-soiled with minor edgewear and several closed tears, professionally repaired.


Williams 53, 54. William et al., 193,196.
