You are viewing a Ca. 1930's volume of ''Alice in Wonderland'' by Lewis Carroll, and artfully illustrated by Gwynedd M. Hudson. The book is the Centenary Edition, published by ''Hodder & Stoughton, Limited for Boots Pure Drug Co., Ltd., Nottingham and Made and Printed in Great Britain by C. Tinling & Co., Ltd., Liverpool, London and Prescot''. These old volumes do not have publishing dates, alas!!! However, one can figure what the centenary date of Lewis Carroll's original ''Alice'' would be! The book features red hardboard covers with gilt gold lettering and illustration on the cover and spine. There is wear to the cover, edges, etc., as to be expected of a child's book of this age. There is some foxing as seen on the inside covers and some of the pages -- though yellowed, the pages are heavy weight paper, and are still crisp. The volume is complete, and the illustrative plates are wonderful!!! Naughty child, however, pencilled on the backsides of some illustrative plates -- which I believe can be erased. I guess the ''empty page'' on the back of the illustrations was just ''too much'' for this inventive child, who added her own narrative -- and in her own ''language'' of the time!! The book is about 8'' x 10'' in size. Items come from a smoke-free environment. Please email with any questions or for additional photos. White spots on photos are often the result of camera glare.
