Item Description: Boston. Roberts Brothers, 1869. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. Hardcover. Bound in original purple binding, with title in an oval on the front cover. Lettering in gold on the spine. The spine (and title page) note that this is the second part. 359 pages + 8 pages of ads. Frontispiece and 2 additional plates present. Covers are worn and corners bumped. Cloth is split at the front hinge, so the spine strip is attached by the read hinge only. Binding is slightly shaken, but all intact. Three ownership names on the first blank page, the first of which is dated August 1869. Brown endpapers cracked at gutters, but backing linen strong. Please email to request photos -- really should be seen so condition can be assessed. It's all here, but will ultimately need to be restored to sit safely and proudly in a serious collection.

Item Description: Boston. Roberts Brothers. 1869, 1869. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Green cloth with gold lettering on the cover and spine. Binding tight, but slightly shelf-cocked (as is often seen with this volume). Good corners and hinges. Inside hinges are good (uncracked). The name Edith Held is stamped on teh front free endpaper twice. 359 pages + ads. Title page is dated 1869. Frontispiece has tissue guard. The ads at the back are not dated, so this is not one of the first edition states described in the BAL. It is, however, a mixed state of ads which we have seen elsewhere on ABE, so it is not a unique variant, either. The ads at the rear are numbered 16, 12, 11, 3, 2, unnumbered, unnumbered, 14. The BAL calls for some mention of Alcott's works among these ads; there is no such mention here. The second part of Little Women was rushed to press just months after the unexpected success of the first part. The earliest copies to reach bookstores had advertisements in the rear dated April 1869. Later copies have later ad-packets. It seems worth noting that all the copies with 1869 on the title page were printed at the exact same time. It is only by the date of the ads at the rear (inserted by the binders) that any distinction is made between states. It is possible that this copy, with a jumbled state of ads, arrived in bookstores alongside the very earliest known copies. Or, if BAL is entirely correct, this copy didn't get to stores until later in the spring of 1869. This copy has all the plates. The pages are clean, with little or no foxing. Please email with questions or to request photos. Bookseller Inventory # Fred-Y53
