Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
DALI'S ICONIC ILLUSTRATIONS FOR LEWIS CARROLL'S ALICE IN WONDERLAND - ONE OF ONLY 2500 EXAMPLES, HERE SIGNED BY SALVADOR DALI TO THE TITLE PAGE. RARE.
The rare complete set of one etching in colors and 12 heliogravures with woodcut remarque on Mandeure paper, all loose as issued, with title page, text and justification, signed in pencil on the title page in truly fine condition.
An exceptional example - these always cause a stir when they arrive on the market!
To have a complete set with the original brown silk chemise and the leather-backed case is extraoridinaly rare as most of the loose illustrations have been framed by collectors over the years.
