Boston: Loring, Publisher, 1868. Alcott (1832-1888) was impoverished, but not intellectually, and received her education from the leading transcendental lights of the day. She was an Abolitionist and a Feminist, and a rather wonderful writer. This is a collection of three "proverb stories," a Very Good copy of the First Edition. The proverbs are "A stitch in time, saves time; Children and Fools speak the truth; and Handsome is, that handsome does." Uncommon. Green decorative cloth binding, stamped in black and gilt. Clean text; 148 pages; unfoxed, bright and readable now. This is an attractive small book, but with certain condition issues: there is a stain on the rear cover(which looks worse than it is in a scan!); the head of the spine looks to have had a tear that has been reglued; there is some rubbing that thins the cloth in several places. There is a very faint previous-owner signature on an endpaper ( which Quercus believes to be dated Christmas 1881). Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Augustus Hoppin. First Edition.
