This Alice in Wonderland with Gwynedd M. Hudson's delightful illustrations was first published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1922 in maroon cloth with gilt and black decoration with a limited edition of 250 copies signed by the artist in cream binding gilt. It was reprinted by them shortly afterwards for Boots the Chemists with the same illustrations but in slightly smaller format in blue cloth gilt. It was issued again for Boots in 1932, (this edition), marking the centenary of Lewis Carroll's birth, but this time in bright red cloth. Gwynedd M. Hudson studied at the Brighton School of Art and became a painter of figure studies, an illustrator and a poster artist. She is known today primarily for her illustrations for Alice and for Peter Pan and Wendy. A great addition for any Lewis Carrol, Alice in wonderland or Gwynedd M Hudson collector.
