Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Moser, Barry (illus.)

West Hatfield, MA: Pennyroyal Press, 1982. Illustrated with 75 wood engravings, some of which are full-page plates, while others are beautifully integrated into the layout. Accompanied by an additional suite of the wood engravings, with each print signed by Moser, in a linen-covered chemise. Printed in five colors on a paper specially made for the Press by Strathmore Mills, with calligraphy by G. G. Laurens. The type is Bembo, printed in blue, black, and red. The edition was based on Carroll's corrections to his original text, and the story is accompanied by a gloss, printed in red, providing additional commentary written by one of America's leading Victorianists, James Kincaid. This was the first in a series of deluxe folio editions of classic texts printed at the Pennyroyal Press. It sold out almost immediately and has remained the most popular of Moser's oeuvre ever since.

Folio. 150pp. One of 350 copies, signed by Moser. Bound by Gray Parrot in half purple morocco with marbled paper over the covers. Housed in a morocco-backed linen clamshell box. A few abrasions to spine of box, sunned, else fine. Item #29805

Price: $5,000.00
