Lewis Carroll retold by Edith Robarts

Alice in Wonderland - Stories for the Children, C1910

Published: Ward Lock & Co., Limited, London

Date: c.1910

Stories for the Children Series. Brown cloth covers with extensive gilt lettering & design framing a paste down to front board and gilt lettering & design to the spine. Golden decorative endpapers and seven full page plates, not signed, including the frontispiece. Overall a little shaken, lacking ffep and one plate that should be opposite page 16. Rubbing to the boards, loss to the edge of paste down and scuffing to corners and tips of the spine. Very fragile pages with foxing, marks and creases also affecting the plates and inscription dated 1910 to pre title page. With all that said, this is a hard to find edition with beautiful illustrations of a red haired and rose cheeked Alice. 96pp
