Alice in Wonderland Signed by Ralph Steadman, Part 2

A copy of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland with Ralph Steadman's outstanding1967 illustrations is signed and inscribed by the artist. It is also dated 2 July 1980, the numbers of which have been transformed into on extremely minimalist drawing. The book is being offered on eBay for $650, a price which may or may not have ingested the wrong end of a mushroom.
