CARROLL, Lewis. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Illustrated by John Tenniel. NY: Limited Editions Club, 1932. 8vo, xiv 185pp. Red leather decoratively stamped in gilt: a.e.g. B&w illustrations throughout. Leather a bit rubbed at spine ends and corners, spine a tad sunned, discoloration due to binder’s glue around edges of endpapers, else an internally clean, bright copy. Signed by the inspiration for the character of Alice, Alice Hargreaves née Liddell, and the binder, Frederic Warde.

Limited edition being one of 1,500 numbered copies, this one being signed by the woman, who as a little girl, inspired Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) to write his immortal story. Though The Limited Editions Club originally planned to have Alice Hargreaves sign the full printing of 1,500 copies of this title and 1,500 of Through the Looking-glass, it is reported that she signed less than 1,000 in total. A lovely copy of this stunning limited edition.
