Alice Im Spiegelland [Through the Looking-Glass, and what Alice found there].
8vo. Original mid-blue cloth lettered gilt to spine with a decorative title in gilt to upper board, mid-blue endpapers, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; [vi], 7-121 + [ii]; with 12 fine, striking, and saturated, colour-lithographed plates in Expressionist style together with a decorative title in black and white; a very attractive copy indeed with mild dulling to spine gilt, internally fresh throughout with almost unavoidable even toning to text stock and a couple of insignificant edge nicks, protected by the remarkably elusive pictorial dustwrapper featuring an additional coloured plate not reproduced internally, the wrapper with light overall dusting, small loss to head of spine (maximum width 27mm), one or two short and closed edge tears, nicking to a couple of corners, and light lateral creasing to top edge. First edition illustrated thus. A very scarce edition indeed, not included in Lovett (the seminal bibliography of Alice which lists over 2000 titles) although a copy of (apparently) the same year, with only 5 coloured plates, and without a dustwrapper, is listed (689). Only two other copies of this book were traced in commerce at the time of cataloguing and neither possess the dustwrapper.
