CARROLL, LEWIS
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Ward, Lock & Co. Fifth Edition. Hardcover. Complete, with all 48 colour plates accounted for. The boards are slightly rubbed and edge worn, but have been well protected in a plastic covering. The illustration to the front board remains bright and vibrant, as does the rest of the text on the boards. Internally, the verso of the front end page has been inscribed by a previous owner, and the half title page is aggressively foxed. The pages of the body are complete and whole, but there is foxing throughout. This foxing does not affect the legibility of the text in any manner. The pages within are crisp and complete. The binding remains tight. A charming book. JV.K. Very Good/No Jacket.
