First state with top edge gilt.
The first edition of this work, enclosed in the smart original dust wrapper.
Including a frontispiece portrait of Carroll, eight collotype plates, and five in-text illustrations. Collated and complete.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, very smart and bright, with just a touch of bumping to the head and tail of the spine and extremities, and just a small amount of shelf wear. Original unclipped dust wrapper is smart, with some light edge wear, and sunning to the backstrip. Wrap is slightly faded, and with a few spots. Internally, firmly bound. A few spots to the first and last few pages and fore-edge, though remaining pages are bright and clean.
Very Good Indeed
