Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland 1899. 2nd Printing!
This 110 year old book is in great condition. The cover does have some soiling at the edges, the binding is just a little loose. There looks to be 1 ink mark on a page on the inside of the book, but this does not effect any of the text or illustrations. Pg. 30 has a rip and previous owner put clear tape on it to repair it. Other than this, there are no pencil markings or tears, although on the first page (blank page) original owner wrote in pencil, '1899 edition' and there are some lines. Through the rest of the book, all of the pages are tight. There are many wonderful illustrations by John Tenniel. This edition has 'Preface to the Eighty - Sixth Thousand' that is dated Christmas, 1896. It has a poem that is not titled and then a 'Christmas-Greetings from a fairy to a child' which is dated 1867. It has gilt trim on the cover around the edges and has Alice looking through a curtain in the center of the cover all in gilt. All 3 edges are gilt and still shine well.
This is a great 110 year old addition for your vintage collections.
Shipping will include tracking#, and a signature will be required for delivery.
