About This Item

1883. With Sixty-five Illustrations by Arthur B. Frost and Nine by Henry Holiday. London: Macmillan and Co., 1883. 1 page undated ads. Original light green cloth pictorially decorated in gilt. First Edition of Lewis Carroll's first major collection of verse (though some of the material had appeared earlier, in PHANTASMAGORIA and in THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK). The grotesque Frost illustrations appear here for the first time. The dedicatory verse doubly hides the name of the dedicatee (Gertrude Chataway). This is a near-fine copy (minor bubbling of the cloth, cover gilt less than bright). Williams Madan & Green 160.
