LE AVVENTURE D'ALICE NEL PAESE DELLE MERAVIGLIE Tradotte dall'inglese da T. Pietrocòla-Rossetti.
Londra, Macmillan, 1872. In-16 gr. (mm. 183x115), tela edit. rossa, al piatto anter. ritratto di Alice che tiene in braccio un maialino e a quello poster. il Gatto che ride, impressi in oro in medaglione; pp. (12),189, 1 c.b. Il vol. è illustrato da 42 composizioni di John Tenniel, ed è introdotto da una serie di versi. "Prima edizione della traduzione italiana". (la I inglese è del 1866). Cfr. Quayle "The Collector's Book of Children's Books" (1967), p. 42: "Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) was knighted in 1893, during a long career as joint cartoonist with John Leech of the magazine "Punch", in which he gained great fame for the originality and wit of his political satires. It was the harmony of Dodgson's text with Tenniel's inimitable series of illustrations that combined to produce the work the world knows (in almost any language you care to mention) as "Alice in Wonderland", and immortalised the names of 'Lewis Carroll' and John Tenniel. Never, before or since, has any illustrator caught the mood and atmosphere of a story in so faithful a fashion.. "Alice", without Tenniel's illustrations, is unthinkable". Esempl. molto ben conservato. Assai raro.
