The book has 50 wonderful illustrations, not a single one of which is coloured in and all are in very good condition.

The binding is tight throughout.

The spine is in good condition and is slightly grubby from use. The rear cover is in good clean condition with the Macmillan logo still nice and bright. There are a few very minor surface marks to the covers but these are minor. The book is definitely good plus for its age and I think you would struggle to find one in better condition. This is a very scarce and very highly collectable early first edition Alice book in very good condition on the inside and good plus condition for its age on the outside being offered at a ridiculously low starting price, no reserve and a buy it now of £349.99.
