Alice In Wonderland Old Antique Large Book Centenary Edition Gwynedd Hudson:
Beautiful large antique book ALICE IN WONDERLAND - CENTENARY EDITION by lewis carroll, with 11 leafed illustrations by gwynedd m hudson. Published by hodder and stoughton and boots pure drug co, can't find a publication date on it, but there is an inscription on the inside page dated 1932. Hardback without dustjacket, highly decorated cover, but I think it must have had a dustjacket at some point, as someone has cut out one of the illustrations, stuck to some red paper, and inserted it as a bookmark (see photo), so this must be the remains of the dustjacket! It measures approx 25.5 x 20 x 5cm, around 184 thick pages. There is wear and rubbing to the cover, faded and yellowed on the spine, spine intact with no splits nor hanging loose, front cover a little wobbly but certainly not hanging off, binding to pages excellent with no pages loose, inscription and dedication on first pages, some age browning and foxing, but mainly to the first and lasts.
