Rhyme? and Reason? is a collection of poems by Carroll which earlier appeared as Phantasmagoria (1869) and The Hunting of the Snark (1876). The illustrations to The Hunting of the Snark have appeared before, however the other illustrations are new as well as the following poems, "Echoes", "A Game of Fives", "Fame's Penny-Trumpet" and the last three of the "Four Riddles". Illustrations by Arthur Frost appear here for the first time.
Spine ends rubbed, slight stain to cover else a very good copy.
