MACMILLAN COMPANY 1872 - First edition, First Printing A remarkably clean first printing hardcover with the original red cloth covered boards, and the original end papers. First Edition, first issue, with misprint "wade" for "wabe" on page 21. A very Good hardcover with the original red cloth covered boards with some mottling and discoloration (please see images for details). All Edges in full gilt. The book still has the original dark slate blue end papers, with a delicate scripted owner name which blends so it is hard to even see. The original tissue guard is still present. The spine was rebacked with the original cloth lay back down, as such the binding is tight and quite readable. The interior pages are remarkable clean for this title which otherwise is often found with stains, or handling marks or foxing. A scarce copy in the rare original boards, still retaining both the original dark slate blue papers and the original tissue guard. All pages and illustrations are present and very clean with a tight readable binding. Include a stunning 50 illustrations by John Tenniel. Additional images available upon request.
