LOT 3009
[DODGSON, Charles Lutwidge.] 'Lewis Carroll'. Sylvie and Bruno Concluded. London: Macmillan and Co., 1893. First edition, signed and inscribed by Lewis Carroll to the half-title, 8vo (183 x 119mm.) Numerous illustrations by Harry Furniss, 'Advertisement Leaf' loosely inserted. (Toning, some spotting to preliminaries and rear endpaper.) Original red cloth, gilt roundels to covers, g.e. (slight fading to spine, minor staining spots to spine and lower cover). Note: the inscription reads: 'Lady Eustace Cecil, with the Author's sincere regards, Dec. 28th, 1893'. It's possible that Lady Eustace Cecil was the inspiration for 'Lady Muriel' in 'Sylvie and Bruno Concluded'. They met in 1875 at a party in Hatfield House at the invitation of Lord and Lady Salisbury. Provenance: Lady Eustace Cecil (inscribed to by the author on the half-title).
