Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. This is Little Women Part 1 (does not include the sequel).
Published by British Publisher Ward, Lock & Co., London.
No date. Circa 1900.
Condition: A well-loved volume in a hard-to-find binding and design.
Poor/Fair antiquarian condition. The uniquely adorned cover and spine show wear to designs and some loss of brightness to the gold guilt. Fading most notable on spine over the lettering, but letting is still readable.
Internally, the binding is poor/fair with cracking and exposure of the seams throughout and a few pages beging to start (become loose).
This edition is best suited for shelf-display.
Acquired by Barrow Bookstore from a book dealer in Edinburgh, Scotland, this book has at last traveled to Louisa's hometown of Concord, Massachsuetts, where it awaits its next owner.
