Beautiful condition, First Edition of Louisa May Alcott's UNDER THE LILACS. Published in 1878 by her original LITTLE WOMEN publishers Robert Brothers, Boston.
One of 5,000 copies, this volume is in terra cotta cloth with gold-colored-gilt on the spine and cover and inlaid black lilac imge on the cover.
Spine gilding remains bright and clear.
Book has a shelf-wear lean from time. Slight denting in fabric at top and bottom of the spine, and slight rubbing in corners of book. Internal binding is secure with some starting and exposure of the hinges.
Overall, a lovely first edition copy for the Alcott collector.
