Alice's New Book. And Other Tales. With Forty-Seven Page Illustrations
Price: 75.00 GBP
London: Frederick Warne, 'Now and Then' Juvenile series (New York: Scribner, Welford and Armstrong), 1875. 96pp. At each opening there is a short tale in large print, facing the picture which illustrates it. Many of the images are striking, and many of the stories are intriguing, whether fantastic, domestic, or pietistic. Contents very clean, surprisingly fresh, though with small ink spots to top corner of the first three pages, and a few faint marks elsewhere. New endpapers. 187 x 137mm, in the original binding of green cloth, decorated and titled in black, front board title set in a gilt square. Firm and bright, with a few slight marks. A little treasure, and a very nice copy. Very Good+.
