Author: Louisa May Alcott
About the Book:
Louisa May Alcott's Little Women was a critically acclaimed bestseller upon its publication in 1868. It tells the story of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March — each a young woman with a distinctive and relatable personality, a rare feature for a children's novel at the time. The novel continues to resonate with readers as a timeless tale of growing up.
This is the first modern edition of Little Women to feature the complete illustrations of Clara Miller Burd, originally executed in 1926. Burd's brilliant colour plates and detailed drawings bring the world of the March family to life. An introduction by Alice A. Carter, an expert on Golden Age illustration, explores Burd's life and the work of early 20th-century women illustrators. This new edition, handsomely bound in cloth, will be the perfect gift for all devotees of Little Women.
