There are exceptions to the side-by-side layout of annotations in the inner or gutter column of each page, with text and illustrations, with superscripts, in the outer column only. Occasionally both columns show the novel text and illustration (no superscripts) and no notes. The Looking-Glass front material by Carroll (1897?) is printed in two columns on each page, ending in a one-sentence footnote reference to Martin Gardner, The Annotated Alice (1960). The Wonderland front material by Carroll, which is the poem "All in a golden afternoon" alone, is printed in two columns on page 12 without any notes. See also pages 222, 241.

The Wonderland title page ([11]) follows its frontispiece (10); the Looking-Glass title page ([123]) precedes its frontispiece (124). Page [123] is entirely blank.

As a philosopher, Heath found a special pleasure in reading and interpreting the works of Lewis Carroll. The two Alice stories, in his view, "are works of unsleeping rationality, whose frolics are governed by close attention to logical principles". In justification of this belief, he wrote what is probably his most popular work, The Philosopher’s Alice (1974), in which the left-hand pages reproduce Carroll’s text, with Tenniel’s drawings, facing Heath’s philosophical comments.
He was, of course, a member of the Lewis Carroll Societies both in Britain and North America, and for a time president of the latter. He gave many talks to both, including one on the gender of the pig-baby in Alice in Wonderland. He also wrote the article on Carroll for the Encyclopaedia of Philosophy.

The Nursery Alice

The original title was The Nursery "Alice" and Macmillan issued a People's Edition with title page date 1889 (viewed at HathiTrust). Also there was a Preface with closing "Easter-tide 1890."--or so it is published as "Preface to the 1890 Edition. (Addressed to Any Mother.)" in the 2010 edition. To be continued, I hope with access to some 1889 periodicals online.

(Flood quoting publisher Natania Jansz, "Written in the dark days of war – and as an escape from them – she uses a mixture of beautiful sepia and ink washes and pen and ink line drawing," she said. "It would take another decade before the Moomins could burst into full colour with The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My."
(review, quote) Sort Of Books published their first Moomin story in 2001, the year of Tove Jansson's death. The Book about Moomin, Mymble and Little My was exquisitely produced, with a witty and lyrical translation and Jansson's own illustrations.
