'Largest' Alice in Wonderland collection goes on sale

One of the largest collections of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland memorabilia is being auctioned in Oxford.

The auction is of more than 3,000 Alice items acquired over a 25 years by the late Thomas Schuster, an antiquarian book dealer, and his wife Greta.

Highlights from the massive collection - to be sold in 360 lots - have been exhibited publicly on two previous occasions at the Schuster gallery in the late 1990s and at the Tate Modern Liverpool in 2012, as part of an Alice in Wonderland exhibition that later moved to Italy and Germany.

However, the sale is the first opportunity to view the collection in its entirety.
