ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE (SIGNED BY ALICE [LIDDELL] HARGREAVES AND FREDERIC WARDE)
New York: Limited Editions Club, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+. A matching set (both volumes number 574) and each volume signed by Alice [Liddell] Hargreaves, the author's inspiration for the Alice stories, lacking the slipcases. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is Near Fine with bright gilt and leather in great condition. Signed by Frederic Ward, in addition to Alice Hargreaves. Through the Looking Glass in Very Good condition with chipping to leather at top of spine, along spine edges and wear at corners. Both volumes with previous owner's signature to the front paste-down and some toning to paste-downs and end pages due to publisher's glue. Both volumes complete and internal contents are bright and attractive. Alice Hargreaves refused to sign other editions of the Alice in Wonderland books until these two Limited Editions Club books, shortly before her death. Each copy one of 1500, although fewer than the full 1500 were reportedly signed by Alice. Quite scarce to find a signed matching set of one of the all-time great works of children's fiction. Both books housed in an attractive modern slipcase. Additional photos available upon request. Very Good+.
