/Tenniel, illustrator.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

London: Richard Clay, no date, recent printing ; red cloth boards, gilt rulings and cartouche with Alice and the baby pig, blue endpapers, 42 Tenniel illustrations and reproduction of Dodgson's signature, 192 pp. Juvenile hardback.

A nice, inexpensive reproduction of the 19th c Alice, perhaps a copy of the original book printed by Richard Clay after Tenniel disapproved of the quality of the illustrations of the first printing, which would make it similar to the Macmillan reproductions, but there is no statement to that effect.

CONDITION: Near Fine; no names or other marks, appears unread, tight with sharp corners, cover gilt very bright, spine gilt a bit duller but clear. Item #19581

Price: $28.00
