OUR FAVORITE EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST BELOVED WORKS OF AMERICAN LITERATUREThis charming edition of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women is sympathetically illustrated by M.E.Gray. Mrs. March, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy all come to vibrant life in this collection of paintings. The modern reader is invited into the simplicity of an old-fashioned childhood through touching images of ruffles and bows, ringlets and rosy cheeks, sun-dappled meadows, and tender sisterly moments. Item #29999

First edition thus. Lovingly and gracefully illustrated with 12 tipped-in color plates and pictorial endpapers by M.E.Gray. 8vo, original ochre cloth lettered in black on spine and upper cover with pictorial design of four young women surrounded by floral emblem in black and red. ix,307. A very nice, bright and attractive copy with only a touch of minor cloth mellowing.
