About this Item

New York, 1886. With 26 illustrations by Reginald Birch. Quarto, publisher's original grey pictorial cloth , stamped in black, gold, and red. Text block shaken, and a few signatures beginning loosen. Cover quite soiled, with paint splatters on spine, and extremities worn. First State of the First Edition. BAL #2064, with the De Vinne Press device on p. 210, and fourteen pages of ads at rear. Sold "as is," with all faults. One of Merle Johnson's "High Spots of American Literature." Grolier American One-Hundred, #89: ".De Vinne, with his exacting standards, could not print fast enough to meet the demand, and the book had to be transferred to J.J. Little & Co., whose imprint then appears at the foot of the copyright page." Fauntleroy was the publishing phenomenon of the generation. One writer has said: "It does not do to say merely that Little Lord Fauntleroy was a great success. It caused a public delirium of joy. It has the Cinderella charm and something else. Young and old laughed and thrilled and wept over it together. Thousands of adoring mothers put their suffering little boys into clothes exactly like Fauntleroy's in the illustrations." ("Authors Today and Yesterday," edited by Stanley J. Kunitz.). Bookseller Inventory # 11284
