Author: Lewis Carroll

CARROLL, Lewis. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Illustrated in colour by A.E. Jackson. NY: George H. Doran [1914]. 8vo, 512pp (18 printed pages). Yellow cloth pictorially stamped in black. Pictorial endpapers; 16 color plates. Spine ends a tad rubbed, two tiny tears at top and bottom of spine, front hinge starting (but still strong), a few ink spots to top edge of sheets (not affecting internal pages), else a clean, tight copy.

Salesman’s Sample Dummy of the first US edition, featuring the first printed signature – including title, contents, plate listing, and the start of the first chapter – followed by all 16 of the color plates, each hand-mounted on the appropriate page with printed caption. A surprisingly bright copy of A.E. Jackson’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland produced for salesman to show booksellers the vibrant color plates of this edition to elicit orders. Rare, as only a handful of copies like this would have ever been produced.
