Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, and The Hunting of the Snark [Inscribed & Signed with Two Typed Letters Signed by Woollcott]

New York: Modern Library, n.d., ca. 1931. 12mo (16cm.); publisher's blue gilt-embossed cloth, blue topstain; xxi,[22]-351pp.; frontispiece, text illus. throughout. Inscribed and signed on title page: "Inscribed to Fritz Barton by Alexander Woollcott." Cloth spine rather faded, else Very Good to Near Fine. Two typed letters, signed "A.W." neatly tipped to front and rear endpapers, both addressed to "Fritz" on Woollcott's private letterhead and dated Feb. 27 and March 7, 1931. The first, a bizarre letter of condolence, begins: "Gadget received and thrown away...I was saddened by the news about your father. The Masters [sic?] book would have killed him anyway...Remember that your heart is God's little garden...I keep running across your brother all over the world, and you remain my favorite Barton." The second, shorter, letter begins "Dear Fritz: I think your idea is repulsive, and thank God I am busy Wednesday night...I hope my new victrola arrives before you do, as the old one has been thrown out the window to make room for it." We are dying to know what Frtiz's repulsive idea was. Item #785
