Alice’s Adventures Underground by Lewis Carroll: First Edition
A lovely copy of the facsimile of the original book which was afterwards developed into Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. With thirty seven illustrations by Lewis Carroll. These drawings are the basis of the later infamous John Tenniel drawings. The edition is in very good condition.
Original red hard boards with gilt lettering on the cover and triple gilt border. The copy has a faded spine. Minimal wear on the edges of the boards. Bright gilt edges of the pages. Intact and unmarked black end papers. The contents are clean and tidy. Page 74 is creased along the page. Front hinge is starting to crack and is holding very well. Bindings very good. 8vo
