Scarce in this illustrated edition, here is a vintage copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Published in 1929 by George Harrap & Co., Ltd of London. It has wonderful colour plate illustrations by Bessie Pease as well as a number in black line. The contents are in good condition, with some fading to the green cloth being the main condition point to note.

Bessie Pease was an American artist and illustrator, most noted for her paintings of young children. During the early 1900s she was one of the better-known magazine and book illustrators in the United States

Inside the pages are in good condition, clean and tightly bound with no inscriptions or markings of previous ownership. With a few mild creases to the top corners. All of the eight bright colour plates are present as called for and in good condition.

Green cloth covered boards have a large colour paste down to the upper panel. With some rubbing and a little fraying of the cloth at the corners and spine ends. Also has some fading to the surface green around the outside borders of the front board (see final close-up photo). With one small bump halfway down the spine. The binding remains good and strong and there are no cracked hinges.

Your vintage copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.
