Another Little Women Treasure

DSC07118Can you believe this?  I had so many people wanting this edition that I have been searching high and low to find another one.  I did, I found another one just like the one most recently sold.  Only the front cover is in even cleaner and in better condition than the first one I found.

Everyone knows how much I adore everything that Louisa May Alcott has written.


DSC07118I have come across many different versions of Little Women,


DSC07118but this one is a sure rare find.  Published in 1947, the illustrations in this book are gorgeous.

DSC07118 Now this new volume that I found has one page that is slightly wrinkled and has a tare on that page, page 65.  Here is what it looks like.  If you click on the photo you can have a better look.

The quality in the papers that they used in this book let you know this edition was something really special.

DSC07118Illustrated by Louis Jambor, this book has the most incredible illustrations, and ones that I have not seen before.

DSC07118I placed it in my Etsy Shop For The Love of Old Books today.  

I am so excited that I found another one of these editions.  There's a little extra bonus, a book sleeve which was responsible for keeping the cover of the book so clean.

Good morning dearest Karen!

Well, I am off to the first day of school today. It was a grand summer of discovering my drawing interests again, thinking up stories, friendships and home improvement plans. It was lovely, and now it is time to step into the world of children again. YOUR BOOK is lovely and these drawings evoke such beauty of a bygone era that has such a deep rooted heritage in your neck of the woods; I am impressed that you are willing to allow someone else to enjoy it!!!!

Beautiful post, lovely music and a GREAT HEART!!! AniTA

Oh that is a scrumptious edition. I love the feel of pages that are not "cheap" for lack of a better word. Hope that the one to whom this book truly belongs snags it quickly!
