Treasures of the Rare Books Room - Alice in Wonderland

By Paula N on Jul 1, 2015 7:55 AM

This version of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll, is unbound and contains twelve illustrations, original woodcuts and an original etching by Salvador Dali. Each copy is signed by Salvador Dali. The Library owns set number 2069 from a limited edition of 2500 printed in France in 1969.

To view this gorgeous and rare item, please call the Art, Music and Recreation Department at 414-286-3071 and arrange a visit. 

Alice is represented as a girl jumping rope, though sometimes she is difficult to find in each of the scenes. The prints show dream-like landscapes with vivid colors evoking a disoriented state of being related to Alice’s adventure.
