"Fetch me a pair of gloves and a fan" said the White Rabbit to Alice. Note that the "shadow" from the title "Alice" is outlined at the top of the image, the remains of a title overlay. This is reflected in the price.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.
The novel was originally illustrated by John Tenneil; this adaptation for pre-school children was illustrated for the magazine Treasure in 1966 by the wonderful English artist Philip Mendoza who vividly brings the story to life with 70 paintings.
