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: Roberts Brothers, Boston, MA, 1869. Alcott, May (illustrator). First Edition.

Item Description: George W. Briggs & Co., Boston, 1855. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, of Louisa May Alcott's debut book, a collection of short stories and poems written by her in 1849 -- at age 16 -- for her dear friend, Ellen Emerson, the daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and not published until six years after their writing. [Note: Alcott also wrote "The Inheritance" in 1849, but it was not published until 1997.] This is a Near Fine copy with only tiny bits of wear to the spine ends and tiny rubs to the board corners and a small light area to the front board. The front free endpaper has a small loss at the upper edge. The decorative cloth remains unusually vibrant and bright with the spine being only lightly darkened --- altogether a considerably better copy than we usually see. The front free endpaper also bears a presentation inscription from Edward Everett Hale giving this copy a noteworthy Association. The inscription reads: "Alice Miller,- // With the best wishes of her / old friend E.E. Hale / for the New Year / Jan 1, 1856." Edward Everett Hale was a noted Author, Historian, and Unitarian Minister whose father (Nathan Hale) was the nephew of American Revolutionary War Hero Nathan Hale. Among other works, Hale authored the short story "The Man Without a Country". Hale retired from his ministry in 1899 -- and was succeeded in the pulpit was Edward Cummings, father of E. E. Cummings -- at which time he as considered to be one of the nation's most important men of letters. Unsurprisingly, Hale and Alcott knew one another and corresponded, and it is thought that Hale, as editor of the "Christian Examiner, Old and New", sought to publish some of Alcott's work. A statue of Hale by Bela Pratt graces the Boston Public Garden. An altogether Near Fine copy of Louisa May Alcott's debut book with an excellent Association. Bookseller Inventory # 00004374

The author received $32, "a pleasing contrast, she commented in her Journal thirty-odd years later, to the receipts of six months only in 1886, being $8,000 for the sale of books, and no new one; but I was prouder of the $32 than the $8,000." First edition of the author's first book. Bookseller Inventory # 47091
