RESERVED - Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys - Louisa M. Alcott 1871 - Roberts Brothers, Boston - First Edition An elegantly bound sequel to Alcott’s milestone American children’s book ‘Little Women’, ‘Little Men’ follows an adult Jo and her husband, Professor Fredreich Bhaer, as they run their Plumfield Estate School in (predictably) unconventional ways.

Illustrated with black and white frontispiece.
