This is the other treasure I picked up for $10 from the antique flea-market here in Adelaide last week… a copy of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass.” I’m not sure how old it is as there isn’t a publication/print date, and it’s missing it’s dust jacket (which I prefer anyway!)… but the book has some lovely plate illustrations by Harry Rountree, placing it at being printed around 1908.

I don’t think there could be such a thing as too many versions of Alice illustrations!

Great find!

I have been searching for a vintage copy of Alice in Wonderland for many years now, hoping to serendipitously come across the perfect one, which it seems you’ve found! What an amazing find.
