Hello,

Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland lived from 1832 - 1898 and the first printing of Alice in Wonderland was in 1865.

John Tenniel, the illustrator was born in 1820 and lived until 1911.

The 1828 date is not from when your book was published, but when the publisher, McLaughlin established their business.

McLaughlin published your copy of Alice in Wonderland around 1900, which is a later edition from the first printing in 1865.

On today's market, your volume has a high value of $45.
