First edition. chloë Preston created the Tootsie Wootsies to satisfy Raphael Tuck’s request for a family as successful as her earlier Peek-A- Boos. The format of this work did not catch on, however, because the work was difficult to handle, particularly by the young.

211. PEAKE, Mervyn (illustrator). Lewis CARROLL (author). Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; Through the Looking-Glass. Stockholm; Zephyr Books, The Continental Book Company. 1946. £368


8vo. original taupe pictorial card covers printed in sang-de-boeuf and blue, preserved in repeat dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-347 + [v]; illustrated with 66 line drawings, many of which are full-page; a near fine copy with just the meerest suggestion of creasing to spine; protected by an exceptionally clean dustwrapper with thumbnail loss to head of spine.


First edition illustrated by Peake, and an important interpretation of this classic work for the collector. Unusually first printed and issued in Sweden, but in English. The English edition itself did not appear for another eight years, when it was published with one fewer illustration and with several of the originals changed or redrawn. These restrictions are printed on the lower cover: “not to be introduced into the British Empire or the U.S.A.”
