Tight clean red cloth hardcover, no date but circa mid 30's with art deco feel to binding and illus. Bright gilt aeroplane/sun motif on front panel with couple atop wings. Gilt clear to evenly faded spine panel. Little wear, corners crisp, no DJ. 12 full page colour plates, 3 by Harry Rountree. Two of these are illustrations in a complete version of Alice in Wonderland, which extends from page 33 to 95, and also has many Harry Rountree line illus. in text. There are many other fairy tales in this volume, mainly classics by Andersen and Grimm, and there are several other very commendable plates by various artists. The book ends abruptly and in the gutter between the final leaf and the pictorial endpaper there appear to be the stubs of three presumably blank leaves. However these are carefully glued down with what best can tell is the original publisher's glue, so I think this is deliberate but just went a little careless at the printers. 278pp. A nice and unusual addition to any Alice collection. Size: 4to. N° de réf. du libraire L15770
