First edition, first printing with publisher Epstein and Carroll printed on dust jacket and stated on title page (later editions have Random House as publisher). Signed by illustrator Jules Feiffer on title page. True first printings of this title are very uncommon and signed copies even more so. A charming story of a child’s wonderful imagination, delightfully written with witty puns that would have surly even made Lewis Carroll crack a smile.

Octavo. Blue cloth with titles to spine white, illustration to front board in white, map endpapers, in dust jacket. A bright and excellent copy in price clipped dust jacket with shallow chipping to spine ends and lower edges, chip to mid front spine edge that effects part of the “L” to title on spine, light chipping and splitting along flap folds with tape at verso. A very presentable copy.
