CARROLL, Lewis (author). Robert HÖGFELDT (illustrator). Alices Äventyr I Sagolandet Och Bakom Spegeln [Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass]. Stockholm; Jan Förlag. 1945.
8vo. Original publisher's half terracotta leather over marbled boards with flat spine ruled, lettered, and decorated in gilt, top edges gilt, pale marbled endpapers; pp. [x], 11-218 + [i]; with 10 coloured plates on cream stock and numerous delicate line drawings, many full-page; a remarkably fresh copy with light rubbing to joints and boards, internally fresh throughout with slight discoloration to endpapers.
First edition of this popular, and charming, interpretation of Carroll's classic illustrated by Högfeldt presented in the scarce de luxe publisher's leather binding, which we cannot trace elsewhere. The text is in Swedish. This edition is not included, in either the standard or this rare publisher's leather, in Lovett, the exhaustive bibliography devoted to Carroll's 'Alice', which lists over 2,000 different editions of the works. An edition, however, in English (Lovett, 304) bound in red cloth with the dustwrapper, and 'Stockholm 1945' to the verso of the title-page, is listed.
