ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (The A. E. Jackson Edition in Original Dust Jacket and Gift Box)
by Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson)
New York: Doran, 1922. Carroll, Lewis. (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. New York: Doran, . First American Edition, thus. Sixteen full-page hinged plates by A. E. Jackson plus dozens of other line illustrations, vignettes and devices. Pictorial endpapers. A remarkably Fine copy of this large impressive volume in a remarkably Fine Dust Jacket in a Near Fine original box (just slightly worn). Quite the survival, the temptation to call it "as new" is barely resistible. Doran did a series of these silver boxed gift books c. 1922 as made clear by the other titles listed on the flaps; in 1927 Doran merged with Doubleday and it appears their deluxe gift box concept was forever scrapped. All titles in this series appear to be exceedingly rare, even more so in DJ and this is the only boxed example we could find online. A. E. Jackson (1873-1952) is one of the two dozen or so great Golden Age Alice illustrators. He first produced his Alice in 1914 for London publisher Hodder & Stoughton with mounted plates. Truly as much a visual feast as any of the fine Lewis Carroll editions we have in stock.. Decorative Boards. VERY FINE/Very Fine. Illus. by A. E. Jackson. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
