ALICE I UNDERLANDET [Alice in Wonderland]

First edition with these illustrations. Signed by Tove Jansson. Publisher's original brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine and a gilt design to the upper board, in dustwrapper. Illustrations in colour and black and white throughout the text by Tove Jansson. Text in Swedish. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth and gilt bright and fresh. The contents with a previous owner's initials to the top corner of the front endpaper are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the very good, lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has several short closed tears and a small chip to the upper left corner of the front panel.

Signed by the illustrator Tove Jansson in black ink at the bottom of the front endpaper. Scarce thus. Moomin creator Tove Jansson brings her exquisitely unique style to the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland. She had previously illustrated Swedish editions of Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark in 1959 and J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit in 1962.
