Description:

DE LUXE LARGE-PAPER ISSUE LIMITED to 1130 hand-numbered copies of the first edition with Rackham's illustrations. With 13 fine colour plates tipped to stiff brown stock with captioned tissue guards, illustrated end-leaves and 14 black and white illustrations throughout the text, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a very fine signed binding from the Chelsea Bindery of full red morocco. The upper cover gilt lettered and pictorially stamped using images from the original cloth covers, the spine with tall raised bands gilt stippled, creating gilt framed compartments, three of which are lettered in gilt, additional gilt lettering at the tail, gilt ruled board edges, wide turn-ins elaborately decorated in gilt with a floral vine motif, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. xi, 161, [1] pp. A very fine and beautiful copy of this wonderful limited edition, without flaw. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER LIMITED DE LUXE PRINTING OF THIS SIGNIFICANT WORK, IN A VERY FINE BINDING. This edition, was the first with Arthur Rackham's illustrations, and due to his being out of the country is the only De Luxe Limited Edition of one of his works to not be signed. With the publishing of this book a great controversy ensued, as critics protested the "presumptuous" replacement of John Tenniel's illustrations, but this only spurred sales of the book. The publisher sold 14,322 copies of the general trade issue of ‘Alice’ at 6 shillings each within the first 6 months of its issue, resulting in Arthur Rackham’s all-time most successful book debut. While reviewers scorned Rackham’s artistic audacity, the public supported his fresh interpretation. One uncharacteristically favorable review by The Daily Telegraph remarked, "The ‘Alice’.is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel’s imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish.Mr. Rackham’s inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel’s types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story.and extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands." - Hamilton Rackham’s ‘Alice’ is sure to delight readers today with its fanciful creatures, its charming depiction of the heroine Alice, and its consistent good humor. And be sure to look for the artist’s self-caricature in his rendition of the Mad Hatter in "The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.". Bookseller Inventory #

This edition is also known as Deluxe, Large Paper, measuring 290mm X 240mm with the large lithographs set on green mounts, these are separately printed and tipped in, unlike in later trade editions, and are all protected by captioned tissues. Lewis Carroll's classic with Arthur Rackham's illustrations is a very famous work, some of the illustrations to this book are Arthur Rackham's hallmarks, defining Alice in Wonderland, and have been much reprinted for all occasions over the last century. This copy is very clean and bright, there is a only a very little bit of very occasional pale spotting. unavoidable offsetting from deep black inks of the line drawings and green plate mounts to pages opposite, endpapers offset to pastedown as is always the case with binders glue over 110 years old, a little bit of binders glue in gutter of some pages, all of the above typical to this handmade antiquarian edition, printed on porous handmade laid paper, which thus has the odd visible fibre and irregularity. The pages have deckled (uncut edges) to the right and bottom. The captioned tissues are in perfect condition, all of the lithographs are flawless, the book appears untouched and unread. There are no bookplates or previous gift inscriptions. Scarce in such bright and clean condition, an excellent and rare find. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1502345057259
