20399 Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass Taft Hotel

Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, (Taft Hotel Edition)

An attractive novelty Alice, on pulp paper, appears to be 20s to early 30's from decor, but these were published over many decades. Other titles, all in yellow-orange, were Murder at the Rue Morgue, A Study in Scarlet, Last of the Mohicans... "When the Taft was built in 1926, it was one of the premier tourist hotels in the city. The Roxy Theater opened next door the following year, and the old Madison Square Garden on Eighth Avenue at 50th Street helped provide steady business." NYT: After a shabby period, it was reborn in the 90s as the Michaelangelo Hotel. It's easy to be nostalgic about a hotel that gave out complimentary books! Note: This book has been sold.
