Macmillan. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll ~ FIRST UK 1867 Printing (SEVENTH THOUSAND) by MACMILLAN. 42 Beautiful Illustrations by John Tenniel. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll ~ FIRST UK 1867 Printing (SEVENTH THOUSAND) by Macmillan. 42 Beautiful Illustrations by John Tenniel. The scarce original tissue guard is present as are the very rare original boards together with the original binders small stamp "Bound by Burn" on the rear board. No inscriptions but "£3" is written in pencil on the front board - £3?!, if only!! Some mottling, discoloration, and minor bubbling to the original red cloth front and rear. The book is complete but is 153 years old and needs restoration as seen in the photos - please study these well as this is the book you will receive. Happy to answer questions and send additional photos via eBay messages. I am informed a full repair is possible and have received several estimates, one from specialist Peter Harrington's bindery for £600 plus VAT but others were less. I have decided to leave this to the new owner to undertake as, when and if they wish. Extremely rare opportunity to acquire this highly collectable, rare and iconic book. I have resisted selling this treasured item for years but needs as needs must - I may still falter and keep it! Will post this anywhere in the world but ONLY via a fully insured 'tracked and signed for' service. Price given is to USA & Canada - PLEASE contact if elsewhere as cost likely to be different! [Attributes: First Edition]
