It was around Christmas a few years ago, when I had a different and short lived blog, that I originally posted about this beautiful 1869 first edition of Little Women. I am still in total shock that it sits on my bookshelf and I get to read it whenever I like.
The first edition of Little Women was printed in two volumes (this is the second volume) and features illustrations by Louisa May’s sister, May Alcott, the real life inspiration for Amy March. Maybe at some point I’ll find a match for her, but I think she’s pretty special on her own. (Yes, she.)
So this is the last day of my mini blogmas! Have a very Merry Christmas and I’ll meet you again in the new year!! Happy Holidays!!!
