First edition with these illustrations. Publisher's original brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine and a gilt design to the upper board, in dustwrapper. Whimsically illustrated throughout by Tove Jansson with colour and black and white in-text illustrations. Text in Swedish. A very good or better copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth and gilt bright and fresh. The contents with a single splash mark to the green front endpaper are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps or inscriptions. Complete with the very good rubbed, nicked and marked dustwrapper that has several short closed tears at the edges and a small chip at the top right of the upper panel.
Moomin creator Tove Jansson brings her exquisitely unique style to the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland. She had previously illustrated Swedish editions of Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark in 1959 and J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit in 1962.
