Still loved today: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett


Frances Hodgson Burnett is best known for three children’s novels – Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden.

This just sold for $850. It’s a UK first edition of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, published by William Heinemann in 1911. It has illustrated endpapers, and eight full-page tissue-guarded color plates by Charles Robinson. Published in the same year as the first American book edition, Hodgson Burnett’s classic story for children was first serialized, starting in autumn 1910, in The American Magazine, a publication aimed at adults.
