ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
Illustrated by Arthur Rackham
Published by William Heinemann. 1st. 1907
Almost very good condition. With a Proem by Austin Dobson. Limited edition of eleven hundred and thirty copies, of which 1100 were for sale and the remaining 30 copies were reserved for presentation. Large format. White cloth, gilt titles and vignette to front. Brown and white pictorial endpapers. 13 tipped in colour plates plus b/w illustrations. xi and 161 numbered pages.
Spine and corners bumped and worn, fraying to cloth at top and tail of spine and a small section of the front edge starting to split (but hasn't yet). Spine is grubby/sunned with grubby marks to covers are well (see photos). Endpapers are browned. Rear joint is cracked (possibly very neatly repaired). There is a light crease to one of the plates, all others are present and in fine condition. Light page browning and fingering to contents and some light foxing. A small brown spot affects the margins of pages 105 to 113. Overall this is still a very decent copy of the scarce limited edition Rackham Alice.
