>I need to identify lucky owners of the Illustrated Alice in Wonderland -- especially copies with the slipcase indicating that it was distributed at the Jan. 1948 Philco convention in Palm Beach.

>I have an article on the Illustrated Modern Library coming out in the next issue of Printing History, the journal of the American Printing History Association.  This is the journal where I published my first ML article, "The Modern Library Series: Format and Design, 1917-1977", way back in 1979.  When I presented the first version of the paper at a recent conference of the American Printing History Association, I used images of the Illustrated Alice and the slipcase downloaded from Dogeared.  For the published version, I need super high-quality scans of the slipcase and the front cover of the book showing the acetate jacket.

>If you can help, please email me and I'll send the journal's specifications for scans.  You will be gratefully acknowledged in the article.
