Book Description Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1877. Book Condition: Used: Very Good. First edition, 6 3/4 x 4 1/2; pp. [9], 8-290 + [8] pp. publisher's advertisements; black cloth over boards with red and gilt decorations and title; cloth on head of spine and along front hinge unobtrusively repaired; a bit of rubbing to tail of spine; faint discoloration to fore-edge of last few leaves; illustrated with frontispiece steel engraving of a four-leaf clover; very good condition.As part of "No Name Series," a publisher's ploy to get the readers to guess the name of the author, Louisa May Alcott published her work anonymously and it was not until 1889, when an edition appeared with her name on it. A spin on the legend of Faust, her present book was one of her least known works, a radical deviation from her other writings - darker and more brooding, dealing with greed, lust, and drug use. In her own journal she had written: " It has been simmering since I read Faust last year. Enjoyed doing it, being tired of providing moral pap for the young.". Bookseller Inventory # 000609

Book Description Robert Brothers. Boston, 1877. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Hardcover, 290 pages + 6 pages of ads. Ads on the endpapers as well. Bound in black cloth with red lettering and decorations on the cover; red and gold on the spine. Alcott's name does not appear anywhere - this was published anonymously. Frontispiece illustration of a four leaf clover. Binding is good and tight, but the cloth is split at the front hinge, revealing the backing linen beneath. There is little or no loss of cloth, so it could be easily repaired. Contents good and clean. Pervious owner's name in pencil on first blank page. Alcott had already achieved fame as the author of her children's books, while her adult books were not as well received. She published this tawdry tale anonymously.
