Thank you very much for looking. This is an incredible example of one of the 2 or 3 most highly prized editions of Mr. Salvador Dali's lithographs ever published. Please contact us with any questions and feel free to contact us at 503 239-5222 during any afternoon except Sunday (Pacific Standard Time) should you wish to speak with us directly.
Also, we listed and sold a different copy of this same book (#2106) approximately a month ago and as a result were offered a second copy in nearly identical condition for consignment. If you look at our feedback you will see a positive feedback left by the purchaser of the last copy we had. This one is in nearly identical condition, with the original shipping box and immaculate inside, though the clamshell box has just a hint more discoloration, as described and shown below. Thank you very much for looking and we hope this finds you well.
Here we have an incredible example of one of Mr. Dali's most significant books and a rare opportunity to purchase a complete collection of the drawings he drew to illustrate Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Published by the Maecenas Press imprint under Random House Publishers, this book was issued published and issued in 1969 in an edition of 2,500 released to the general public. This is the limited edition, not the Deluxe limited edition of 200 which can sell for $30,000 or more. This edition is signed on the title page by Mr. Dali, as shown below. This example of the book is Near Fine when graded conservatively, including the Original tan leather backed clamshell box with thick cloth boards, gilt lettered spine, original leather ties and faux bone clasps, illustrated by Salvador Dali. It is oversized, measuring 18.5 x 13.5 x 4 inches.
This is copy #1653 of 2500 and it includes the original boxes which wereissued with the book. We are selling this copy for a friend of the store whose uncle purchased this copy new and looked at it very, very rarely. That man has passed away and his family is now selling the book for the estate.
I see the slightest hint of difference in tone to two areas of the front board of the clamshell box and the photos below show what I mean. The difference is slight but noticeable upon examination. This copy contains the prospectus and all pages. All 12 illustrations are present and immaculate. All 12 chapters are divided into sections, each of which is removable from the box and book itself. All are present and are in immaculate condition. This copy Includes the original shipping boxes and is nearly impossible to find in this condition. This is a truly beautiful copy of an incredible example of Mr. Dali's work.
As stated on the prospectus "2500 portfolios, numbered 1 to 2500, were printed on Mandeur paper. Each portfolio is signed on the frontispiece by the artist. Each portfolio contains 12 illustrations with an original remarque on each illustrations. One original colored etching signed in the plate is opposite the fronstipiece."
Please examine the detailed photos below to see what is included in this remarkable example of the book. It is an incredible example of Dali's work and this is a highly sought after copy. As I mentioned, we have sold copy #2106 of this book in the past and regularly deal in scarace and valuable books. We are happy to answer any questions you have regarding our store or this item in particular. Please contact us any afternoon (Pacific Standard Time) except Sunday at 503 239-5222 to speak with us directly.
UPS domestic expedited shipping including insurance for the full value of the book is included in the purchase price. International shipping via UPS including insurance for the full value of the book will be $350. We prefer payment by personal check but will accept payment via Paypal if the buyer very much prefers that method of payment. Again, please contact us with any questions or concerns you have regarding this book.

We use the traditional grading system for books and magazines. The grades are Fine, Near Fine (NF) + or -, Very Good (VG) + or -, Good (G) + or -, Fair and Poor. I can't think of anything that we will be listing here which will be worse than Very Good or Good. For magazines, the grades will be Near Mint+(which will be our best grade as we don't use Mint for used or collectible magazines because any circulated magazine will have some damage, no matter how imperceptible) or -, Excellent+ or -, Very Good+ or -, Good or Poor.
-Fine or Near Mint+: Little to no wear, with at most one or two minor flaws. -Near Fine or Excellent: Light wear, described in the listing, may contain a small marking in the book by a former owner. Possibly a bumped corner or a mark. Magazine will show a little wear, probably appears to have been read. -Very Good (both categories): A little more wear, maybe some creasing or soiling on a magazine; definitely read. Book showing some light marks on the covers, maybe a bumped corner or two. Both should be clean inside unless noted. -Good: Significant wear, with some soiling and probably some light rips or tears. Books are significantly worn, soiled and sunned. Very well read.
