Darling little antique color print from the 1916 Edition of "Alice's Adventures and Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass", published by Rand McNally in Chicago and illustrated by Milo Winter. This scene is from chapter 7 and shows Alice surrounded by the lion, the king, and the unicorn and sawing a way at a large brown cake, nestled on a large plate over her lap. Words below the image say "Alice had seated herself on the bank of a little brook, and was sawing away with the knife."

Here is the excerpt of the corresponding text:

"Alice had seated herself on the bank of a little brook, with the great
dish on her knees, and was sawing away diligently with the knife. "It's
very provoking!" she said, in reply to the Lion. "I've cut several slices
already, but they always join on again!"
"You don't know how to manage Looking-Glass cakes,"the Unicorn
remarked. "Hand it around first, and cut it afterwards."
This sounded nonsense, but Alice very obediently got up, and carried
the dish around, and the cake divided itself into three pieces as she did so.
"Now cut it up," said the Lion, as she returned to her place with
the empty dish.
Illustration surrounded by a large white border with yellowed edging.
A lovely and whimsical picture perfect for framing and gift-giving, decorating a child's room, or for your next scrapbook/mixed media art project."

Very good condition with wear only to edge where it was bound, and a small brown spot at lower left corner. Image excellent.
