Alice no País das Maravilha.

Translated into Portuguese by Henrique Marques Júnior.

Illustrated by René Bour.

Lisbon: Guimarães & Ca., 1951.

 

The more than 50 black and white line drawings by Bour, elegant in their simplicity, bring to mind Picasso, Matisse, Calder, and even at times James Thurber. Henrique Marques Júnior almost certainly translated this book from Bour’s own brilliant French translation, which is said to be the first French translation that reliably transmitted Carroll’s wit.
