ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. --- & ---THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE
Limited Editions Club. New York. 1932/35. TWO VOLUMES. LIMITED EDITIONS, SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES. 8vo. (8.9 x 6 inches). Both volumes are limited editions of 1500 copies. Alice in Wonderland is signed by Frederick Warde, who designed the typography and binding. A leaf signed for this edition by Alice Hargreaves, Carroll's inspiration for the character, is bound in before the frontis. It is thought that she only signed about five hundred of these sheets so most copies do not include it. Looking Glass is signed by Alice on the colophon, as were all copies. Fine copies. Both volumes beautifully Illustrated throughout, with forty-two and fifty line engravings respectively, by John Tenniel. Bright, clean copies, finely bound in publishers delux full deep Red and Blue morocco bindings. Multiple decorative gilt borders on boards. Spines fully decorated, lettered and illustrated with Characters from the books. All edges gilt. Plain endpapers. Housed in the publishers contrasting (the red book of Alice in the Blue slip-case, the blue book of Looking Glass in the red) red and blue slip cases with the books gilt spines reproduced on the flat back panel in black. The slip cases have a little rubbing and wear to the edges but they have kept the books fine and clean.
