Lulu's Library (Volume III) by Louisa May Alcott
1898 early edition published by Roberts Brothers, Boston
Red cloth cover with gold-gilt and black embossed inlay.
Cloth on cover and back remains bright and vibrant; some fading to the spine and dulling of gilt on the spine. On the spine, "Lulu's Library" is readable but does not "pop". Some light fraying and wear to top andbottom of spine. Minimal bumping on board corners.
Title page has two small tears- sadly created by us as we erased a previous owner's library catalog number :-( Binding is secure and internal pages are crisp and clean.
A scarce find, this Lulu's Library Volume III cover in beautiful condition and perfect for face-forward display in any Louisa May Alcott collector's library.
About Lulu's Library Volume III:
"Lulu's Library" is a three-volume set of short stories that were originally told to Alcott's young niece as bedtime stories; as such, they are written at a slightly younger reading level than the author's more familiar children's novels. The tales fall into three categories: traditional fairy stories (of the "little beings living down at the end of the garden" type), stories in which the characters have magical adventures, and more realistic stories set firmly in the real world.
This book offered here is Volume 3 and contains:
RECOLLECTIONS OF MY CHILDHOOD.
A CHRISTMAS TURKEY, AND HOW IT CAME.
