About This Item

This early, rare edition of Louisa May Alcott's classic is in very good condition. Some soiling to boards and bumps to corners. Slight fading to spine. Front hinge has been repaired with clear tape, but is still very much in tact. No internal markings. Rear hinge is cracked but in tact. This is a readable copy! Text is accompanied by more than 200 engraved illustrations. Little Women is one of the most widely read and celebrated novels of American Literature. Four pages of Little, Brown & Co. publications of Alcott's books at rear of book. Priced very reasonably to sell!

Synopsis

Little Women (or Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy) is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott (1832–1888). Written and set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House, in Concord, Massachusetts, it was published in two parts in 1868 and 1869. The novel follows the lives of four sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March—and is loosely based on the author's childhood experiences with her three sisters.

This book is excellent for young girls, or even for those that are just young at heart. This book is just a timeless classic-the characters could be from any time or any place. I would definitely recommend that you have your daughters read this beautiful book.
