Printing Plate from Alice in Wonderland

n.p. n.p., n.d. (1929?). Very good. Item #22221

Metal and wood letterpress printing block approximately 3 by 4 inches and type-high showing an illustration from Chapter 8, The Queen's Croquet, of Carroll's Alice in Wonderland illustrated by Pogany. The plate shows Alice holding a flamingo/croquet mallet with two hedgehog/croquet balls and one of the cards bending to form a hoop, with the Cheshire Cat looking down from the sky. Pogany's initials are on the lower left hand corner of the plate. The plate shows wear and use, but so far as we can determine it is not damaged in any way; the raised parts are still clear and sharp. Housed in a custom clamshell case with a print form the plate on the inside upper cover.
