Folkard does a fine job with these colorful plates, offereing us unusual views of the story's magical creatures and characters. This is the first appearance of this artwork; in 1929, these plates were reprinted, but only six, with appropriate line drawings, for Alice in Wonderland, sans Through the Looking Glass.
Tanning to endpapers, a hint of wear to tips. Onlaid cover plate is bright and unblemished, with titles in yellow, an unusually sharp copy of a very unusual Alice, not often seen. Although eclipsed by Rackham and Dulac, Folkard was an outstanding second tier illustrator with a long, successful career in children's illustration. (Inventory #: 26542)
