by Carroll, Lewis (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)
London: Chatto & Windus, 1907. Carroll, Lewis (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Illustrated by Millicent Sowerby with twelve full-page colored plates. London: Chatto & Windus, 1907. First Edition with 1907 on the title page (missing on later issues) and 8pp of adverts at the rear of the volume. A NEAR FINE copy in original publisher's cloth blocked in blind and lettered in gilt with a colorful, bright & unrubbed circular onlay to the upper cover. A beautiful example of the first Alice book published legally without using Tenniel's illustrations when, in 1907, copyright changes led to an immediate golden age of Alice Illustration as Sowerby was soon followed by Rackham, Tarrant, Hudson, Pogány, Laurencin, and many other superb interpretive artists. The front free endpaper has a little pull to it and bears a neatly inked previous owner inscription. The binding is a little cocked. But a better example of this lovely book sans dust jacket would be hard to find.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Millicent Sowerby.
