WILSON, Robert, Tom WAITS and Paul SCHMIDT. Alice.

(Hamburg): Thalia Theatre, 1992.  First edition.  Small oblong quarto.  63 pages.  Scarce volume published to accompany the premier of Robert Wilson’s and Tom Waits’ stage musical ‘Alice’. The acclaimed opera is about Lewis Carroll, the author of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ (1865) and ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ (1871), his obsession with the young Alice Liddell, who inspired him to write these novels, and Carroll’s confusions between dream and reality.  The volume predominately in German is illustrated throughout.  A very good copy in printed wrappers.
