About this Item

Publisher's original burgundy cloth. Gilt-stamped boxed title on the front board. All edges gilt. A photographic title-page and twelve full-page photographs, mounted on card stock, are tipped in. (Abigail) May Alcott was Louisa May Alcott's sister, and the basis for Amy in "Little Women." Louisa wrote the preface and selected the captions for the photographs. There is a slight waviness to the text pages, as if the book was at one time exposed to humidity, though there is no stain or tidemark. The pages with the photographs, being on thicker stock, are unaffected. Divided into sections on Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, and Alcott, the photographs include a sketch of Thoreau in his rowboat on Walden Pond. This large book, roughly 13 ½" x 11", cost a whopping ten dollars at the time of publication. Only 160 copies were printed and the book is, resultantly, quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 000243
