‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ 
by 
Lewis Carroll

, illustrated by 
Bessie Pease [Gutmann]

, with decorative borders by 
G.P. Micklewright.

Hardback in pictorial dust jacket, publisher’s blue quarter-cloth with dark-blue lettering and illustration to spine, grey paper-covered boards with dark-blue lettering plus colour plate to upper cover (illustration not repeated inside book), 8 further colour plates, 9 full-page plus 4 smaller drawings (full-page drawings blank to reverse), decorative running titles and borders throughout, 165 pages plus prelims, 25.5 x 18.7 cm.

First large-format Pease edition,
 also first edition with the Micklewright borders. Undated, but circa 1930.

Bessie Pease Gutmann’s charming version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ made its first appearance in America, in 1907. Several Pease editions followed in Britain, all quite different – the first in 1908, published by Milne, and now almost impossible to find; another in 1920, published by Harrap and subsequently reprinted by Coker; and then this much larger Coker version, published around 1930 – the first large-format Pease edition, also the first edition to feature George Micklewright’s attractive decorative border, used throughout the book.

Lovett does not provide a date for this edition (Lovett 212c), but I have seen an identical copy with an inscription dated 1930.


This particular copy – in exceptionally good condition – comes complete with the rare original dust jacket.

Condition:
Contents crisp and bright, very clean. No owner inscriptions. Bumping to some upper gutters, two or three pairs of gatherings slightly stretched, foxing to edges of page block (intruding slightly into margins), a few foxing spots elsewhere, pale offsetting to endpapers. Binding tight, with slight lean. Boards very clean, with a little fading/discoloration along edges, a little rubbing/bumping to extremities, small surface chip to illustration. Head and foot of spine with bumping, rubbing and wear; head of spine also with one short closed tear. Unclipped dust jacket with soiling, creasing, chipping and discoloration, a little foxing, usual wear to edges, some tears (one lightly glue-repaired).
