Description:

[FINLEY, Martha]. Elsie Dinsmore. By Martha Farquharson. Original embossed purple cloth, gilt spine, housed in custom purple morocco-backed cloth drop case. New York: M.W. Dodd, 1867. First edition of the first Elsie Dinsmore book. "But two copies of this volume have come to the compiler's attention"-Blanck, Peter Parley to Penrod, p.26. Extremely rare in the trade. We can trace only one copy, this copy, to sell at auction. This copy sold at the Katherine de B. Parsons Sale in 1976 for $2,500. It sold again in 1992 for $7,150. Martha Finley is best known for her Elsie Dinsmore series, melodramatic and sentimental fiction focusing on Elsie's trials and the solace offered her by her religious beliefs. Originally written under the pseudonym "Martha Farquharson" (Gaelic for "Finley"), the series grew to 28 titles, published over a period of 38 years. Much has been written about the series, discussing everything from its tear- soaked heroine and her relationship with her father to its enduring popularity during the 19th century. In the early 1900s, Edward Stratemeyer, inspired by the remarkable lifespan of the Elsie series, hit upon the idea of books written by ghostwriters, which allowed him to churn out story upon story to the delight of his readership. It was under his stewardship that Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins, and the Hardy Boys appeared. A fine copy of a rare book. Bookseller Inventory #
