Exquisite Alice






This book is absolutely breathtaking! This Alice in Wonderland, published by Bancroft & Co (London), is an early hard cover pop-up (Maybe 1960? It is undated). The illustrated boards have the original plastic window in die-cut front cover. One double-page spread features pop-up of tea party house. A second double-page spread features two rows of pop-up playing cards with both rows intact. All pop-ups are printed in four color on both sides. The front cover board shows damage and the board edges and corners are worn through, but this book is scarce and beautiful.

Truly for the serious collector. You'll need to e-mail us to ask the price or arrange to see it.
