Publisher's full yellow cloth, red lettering on spine and cover, red borders on cover, color paste-on to cover. Illustrated with six full-page color plates by Hugo von Hofsten (after John Tenniel). This is the first edition with the Von Hofsten plates. Hugo von Hofsten (1865-1947) was born in Vermland, Sweden. He came from a Swedish family elevated to the nobility in 1726 and prominent in Swedish commerce, industries, and literature. He studied in Stockholm at the Royal Academy under M.E. Wingé, Olof Arborelius, and Hugo Palm. He emigrated to the United States at the age of 20 in 1885. He began life in America as an illustrator in New York, working on the New York Graphic as well as other periodicals. He settled in Winnetka, IL, in 1893, working there as an illustrator on local daily and Sunday newspapers. He also created drawings and paintings, concentrating on landscapes, which he exhibited locally. He was the official artist for the Cook County Forest Preserve and the President of the Forestry Painters Club in Chicago. When the Swedish-American Art Association was established in 1905, von Hofsten was chosen as treasurer. An exhibit comprised of members of this group was held that same year which included works by Von Hofsten. He exhibited watercolor paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago four times between 1903 and 1917. He was awarded the first watercolor prize by Swedish American Artists in 1919. In 1927 he moved to Southern California, where he died in 1947. .

Synopsis

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There , tell the story of a young girl in a fantasy world filled with peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The classic tale of literary nonsense takes the reader on an exploration of logic and absurdities. The Alice books — sometimes combined or referred to with the abbreviated title Alice in Wonderland — have been translated into at least 97 languages with over a hundred different editions. The books have also been adapted numerous times into films (both live-action and cartoon), plays, and musicals.
