    The Wonderland Postage Stamp Case was a cloth-backed folder with twelve slots, two marked for inserting the then most commonly used penny stamp, and one each for other denominations to one shilling. The folder fit into a slip case decorated with a picture of Alice on one side and the Cheshire Cat on the other. The whole thing fit in your pocket or purse. When you bought it new it also included a copy of Carroll's pamphletted lecture, Eight or Nine Wise Words About Letter-Writing.
