Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1886. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, of this important Alcott novel, SIGNED BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT on the title page -- in the first state mentioned in BAL with the closed page block bulking at 1 1/16 inches. (The second state mentioned in BAL is made of thinner paper and bulks at 1 inch.) A Sequel to Little Men, "Jo's Boys" is one of Alcott's best-known works, the others being "Little Women" and "Little Men". The three works together comprise what is generally called the Little Women series. Alcott based the character "Jo" on herself and in "Jo's Boys" Jo's children have grown up and now face real world problems and troubles. Set ten years after Little Men, the novel follows the Plumfield boys which Little Men introduced, focusing mainly on Tommy, Emil, Demi, Nat, and Dan, as well as Jo's sons Rob and Teddy, and, of course, Professor Bhaer. Others characters previously introduced in the series appear as well. Signed copies of the book are, in our experience, exceedingly scarce. The volume is mildly askew and shows some chipping to the spine ends, some fading to the front board where it meets the spine, some fading to the rear board, and wear to the board corners with a bit of rubbing through. The hinges feel as if they have been reglued, leaving some small damage to the pastedowns and each adjacent free endpaper. A Very Good copy of one of Louisa May Alcott's most important works and a highly-notable work of American Literature as well, SIGNED BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

Item Description: Scribner & Co. / The Century Co., New York, 1935. Hardcover. Magazine. 114 bound volumes with the original wrappers and advertisements bound in. Quartos. A consecutive run from 1873-1935 of Mary Mapes Dodge's famous monthly magazine for girls and boys, known for debuting the work of many important American and English writers. Among the many complete works included in this run are the first printed appearances of several major titles, including Alcott's *Eight Cousins* and Burnett's *Little Lord Fauntleroy*, five *Jungle Book* and three *Just-So* stories by Rudyard Kipling, and Mark Twain's *Tom Sawyer Abroad*. Works from the 20th Century include Jack London's early novel, *The Cruise of the Dazzler*; four prize-winning poems by the young Edna St. Vincent Millay; L. Frank Baum's "Juggerjook" and *Queen Zixi of Ix* (which he and many readers consider his best book); and A.A. Milne's poem "Teddy Bear" illustrated by Reginald Birch, which marked the first American appearance of Winnie-the-Pooh. Also included are other contributions by Alcott, Burnett, and Milne, Howard Pyle's *The Story of King Arthur and His Knights*, and Palmer Cox's popular and long running series "The Brownies." Other notable contributors are William Dean Howells, Joel Chandler Harris, Frederic Remington, and Jacob Riis. As editor, Dodge contributed stories and poems, wrote the monthly column "Jack-in-the-Pulpit," and created the magazine's departments, including the celebrated "St. Nicholas League" in 1899. The League published prize-winning poetry and prose, puzzles, drawings, and photographs submitted by the magazine's young readers. Among the notable submissions from 1904-1910, the League published seven poems and a letter by Millay, and Eudora Alice Welty had a prize-winning drawing: "A Heading for August" published in 1920. Listed on the Roll of Honor for drawings in August 1905 is Edward Estlin Cummings; F. Scott Fitzgerald was listed in October 1910 for a photograph; and in the November 1911 issue William Faulkner (as Falkner) was listed for a drawing. A remarkable assemblage of first appearances of major works for children. Further details available upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 374083

Item Description: St. Petersburg: Izdanie Stasovoi i Trubnikovoi, 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Befriedigend. 1. Auflage. Octavo (18.5 x 13 cm). Contemporary gilt-stamped cloth; 400 pp. Lacking single leaf with pp. 15-16. Binding rubbed and worn; original wrappers perished; owner inscription and two small monogram rubber stamps to title page; stains, a few underlinings and occasional paper restorations throughout; one gathering detached. Apparently unrecorded first Russian translation of part one of Alcott's Little Women, which formed the first in the author's series of works for children and young adults. The title as translated into Russian reads: "Little women or the childhood of four sisters. A tale for children. Aside from being the first appearance of any of Alcott's works in Russian, the present edition is notable for its publishing background: from 1863-1879, Maria Trubnikova and Nadezhda Stasova operated the first, and only ever, all-women translation and publishing cooperative, which included thirty-six members, mostly members of the Russian nobility. Though the authorities did not formally approve their bylaws, the cooperative began to publish children's books as well as popular scientific treatises. It also published a number of books that eventually attracted the attention of the Russian censorship department, and the publishing venture increasingly came under close scrutiny. The translator's name is not provided, but it was likely a joint effort by members of the cooperative. A brief publisher's preface (dated 1875) explains some of their motives: "We did not consider ourselves entitled to soften or strengthen any of the features comprising the moral physiognomy of this great people, which shines through even in the narrow frame of a child's world depicted by the author" (I). The print runs reportedly ranged from 1200 to 2500 copies. Not in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Russian State Library (the Russian National Library holds the only copy we were able to locate, which is likewise defective and lacks pp. 31-34). Not in Libman.
