Little Women or Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. Part First and Part Second - Louisa May Alcott

1870 - Roberts Brothers, Boston - Early Printing
Two matching little volumes of Alcott’s classic work, scarce in original cloth, each one illustrated with four full page wood engraved plates. An early printing of the ‘Part First’, and first edition of ‘Part Second’. Published separately in consecutive years (1868, 1869), the first part of ‘Little Women’ “did not sell at first. ‘Part Second’ was therefore also issued in a small edition, but it went like wildfire, and pulled ‘Part First’ along with it’ [Grolier 74].

‘Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth - four "little women" enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War New England. The charming story of the March sisters, Little Women has been adored by generations. Readers have rooted for Laurie in his pursuit of Jo's hand, cried over little Beth's death, and dreamed of traveling through Europe with old Aunt March and Amy. Future writers have found inspiration in Jo's devotion to her writing. In this simple, enthralling tale, Louisa May Alcott has created four of American literature's most beloved women.’ [
