LIMITED EDITIONS CLUB THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS BY LEWIS CARROLL 1935. Please find on offer here for your consideration, a nice copy of another vintage volume of the Limited Editions Club of New York. The book in question is titled: Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by John Tenniel. This small all leather hard cover book (6 x 8 ¾ inches, 214 pages plus the colophon) was published by the Limited Editions Club of New York, dated 1935. It is bound in full blue leather with elaborate gilt decorations on the cover and spine.
The page edges are full gilt all the way round. This is copy number 414 of fifteen hundred copies of this limited edition of Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, with the illustrations by John Tenniel, re-engraved by Frederic Warde, printed for the Members of the Limited Editions Club by the Printing House of William Edwin Rudge, Mount Vernon, N. It is not signed by the artist but then again, I found none signed by him.
It was the sequel to Alice in Wonderland, and issued by the LEC together in similar bindings with slipcases (unfortunately missing here). This book is in good condition.There is some wear to the spine tips where the finish has been rubbed off and a small crack is developing along the lower front gutter. The spine is also sunned but still fully legible and attractive. The corners are very slightly rubbed except for lower rear which has a bit more wear. The covers themselves are clean and bright and very attractive. Inside, the news is much better; the pages and plates are clean and bright throughout. Both hinges are fully intact and the binding is tight and sound. This book is not ex-library or a remainder. Please see my other vintage and collectible books on offer, including several more volumes of the Limited Editions Club and other fine bindings.
Quite a mixed bag but hopefully appealing to some of you.
