"Carroll, Lewis." ALICE IN WONDERLAND. London: John Shaw, [n d. but 1933). Illustrations by D. R. Sexton. 4to. First Edition. A Fine copy of this large and impressive Alice book, remarkably fresh and unrubbed, in a NEAR FINE priced (3 shillings) dust jacket. The book (red cloth spine, bright onlay illustration, blank lower board) is lightly foxed at the edges by the color plates and line drawings are all present and in terrific condition. There is a book-prize bookplate on the front paste-down dated 1934. The bold and beautifully illustrated dust jacket has some edge-wear, a half-crown-sized piece of the rear flap is missing (visually, very minor loss), and the DJ has had archival tape repair to the inside, invisible from the outside. We're not quite sure why this Shaw/Sexton edition is not more celebrated. It cuts an impressive appearance, and the artwork is outstanding. A better copy than this example would be hard to find. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001963
