Superb Illustrated Edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the looking glass and what Alice found there

This edition published in 1911 is the first time John Tenniel’s legendary illustrations were printed in colour 

Sadly the original covers are faded and marked as shown in the photos - but the contents are beautiful fresh and clean
