CARROLL, Lewis (author). Millicent SOWERBY (illustrator). Alice in Wonderland. London; Chatto And Windus. 1907.

8vo. Original mid blue cloth with a decorative panel in darker blue and gilt to upper cover surrounding an onlaid pictorial roundel with blue and gilt border, top edges gilt, double-page pictorial gilt endpapers; pp. [xvi] + 166 + [x], including publisher's catalogue; illustrated with 12 charmingly stylised full colour plates by Millicent Sowerby, chapter-headings in line, and a dramatic black and white title-page; an exceptionally fresh copy, externally fine with none of the usual fading or rubbing to spine and with only minor speckling to fore-edge of book block, internally also very clean with light foxing to front blank, a neat calligraphed and contemporary ink inscription, dated 1910, to the same, light offsetting from previous insertion to two blanks at rear, and occasional tiny marginal marks; scarce, especially in this condition.
First edition illustrated thus, and the earliest of the non-Tenniel interpretations to be offered to the public. Copyright expired on Carroll's classic in 1907 and a clutch of illustrated editions came to the market in that year; this was the first.
