SWAIN SWAINS SWAINSC SWAIN&C (where whatever follows SWAIN may be spaced, may be lower case) is a London wood engraver Joseph Swain 1820-1909 and wood engraving firm. LC identifies only the person LCCN: nr91-44297 (4)

DNB 1912 states (sources include "information provided by J. B. Swain"):

In 1843 he married Martha Cooper, and had issue three daughters and a son, Joseph Blomeley Swain, who carries on his printing and engraving establishment.

Wikipedia [2] (1820-1909) and features two images with different signatures (SWAIN. &c and SWAIN) and states

In 1843 he was appointed manager of the engraving department of Punch, but in the following year set up in business for himself, retaining the whole of the engraving work for Punch from 1844 until 1900.
His own work is not always signed, and the signature "Swain sc" must be taken to include the engraving of assistants working for his firm.
They had three daughters and a son, Joseph Blomeley Swain, who [all or son only?] carried on the printing and engraving establishment.

with featured image apparently signed "SWAIN.[]Sc" or "SWAIN.[]&c" (some of the Snark engraving signatures seem to include a dot or comma)

Have any artists succeeded in meeting the challenge of Tenniel? Pride of place amongst other illustrators must go to Lewis Carroll himself, Rackham, Pogany, Peake, Steadman, Dali, Ernst, Blake and Ovenden[!] but another lover of the Alice books could and probably would create a totally different list.

You identify "Edwin John Prittie" (bold) in the Notes but list three Contents by "Ewin John Prittie". Winston credits him under the correct full name for another of the Children's Classics (see Robin Hood title page [82]), so

WorldCat records for the 1923 omnibus,

  1. Does it show "Alice's Adventures in W" (long title of the first novel) on a main title page and "Alice in W" (short title), page 1, while vice versa for the second novel on title page (short) and page 148 (long with comma)?

Probably before you read this I will edit the "Edwin" author records, but leave "Ewin" to you, expecting it will disappear from the database. --Pwendt|talk 19:01, 6 December 2017 (EST)

The Centenary Edition includes the two celebrated Alice stories together with Carroll's manuscript version, Alice's Adventures under Ground - the 'germ' of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - for the first time; reprints Carroll's essay '"Alice" on the Stage' written for The Theatre in 1887; and is the most comprehensive annotated edition available. Carroll's delightful nonsense books provide readers of all ages with a double window on the wonderlands of childhood and adulthood. Undisputed children's classics, they are also, as Hugh Haughton writes in his introduction, 'two of the most original, experimental works of literary fiction in the nineteenth century'. This Penguin Classics edition also includes all of Tenniel's illustrations along with a selection from Carroll's own pencil illustrations for Alice's Adventures under Ground.

Ralph Steadman - the single illustration shown in this Amazon interior image [230]

At the moment we have several Annotated Alice editions records with Contents that include some Preface and Introduction essays by Martin Gardner. We also have a Notes title T1280641 that appears in no publication record but carries a review in Locus 2000-04.

"This is a review of Martin Gardner's The Annotated Alice, so it has been linked to the essay record, not the novel record."

ISFDB:Community Portal#Notes and Annotations At the moment I have "Annotations (The Wasp in a Wig)" as one content of 1977 chapbook, altho it is credited on the front cover as "Notes", and I haven't seen the interior.

when use "Notes", when "Annotations"?
does the latter imply intermingling with object text, rather than printing in a separate section? editorial content intermingled with the original text
may "Annotations" be inferred from the title of the book? probably so for two title records of The Hobbit annotations T1321374
we have three "(annotations)" as postfix disambiguator; namely title records T1291452 1889325 2210432

I don't know whether the Gardner annotations for Alice's Adventures and Looking-Glass were revised/expanded so that they should be represented by multiple title records.
