Carroll (Lewis)
Snarkjakten. I Översättning av Lars Forssell och Åke Runnquist. Illustrerad av Tove Jansson.
Albert Bonniers, 1959. FIRST SWEDISH EDITION, frontispiece and 8 full-page illustrations by Tove Jansson as well as numerous tail-piece decorations, pp. 52, crown 8vo, original wrappers with Jansson illustrations to both covers (that to front colour-printed), faintest of toning at head of rear cover and some signs of very gentle handling, near fine. A wonderful edition of Carroll's poem, with Jansson's illustrations - full of her characteristically sombre and quizzical expressions - capturing its mood perfectly. A sparkling copy, and scarce thus - the illustrations were used for an English language version by the Tate Gallery in 2012, but this is their original publication.
