$300.00

Rare antique 1898 Flower Fables book by Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women. This is a gorgeous Henry Altemus edition with a blonde fairy woman dressed in white on a green cover surrounded by flowers and silver lettering. There are 34 beautiful illustrations throughout the book. 

This was Louisa May Alcott's first published work, written for Ellen Emerson, the daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson. This children's book would make a wonderful gift for any book collector, new parents, or anyone who loves flowers. 

There is an inscription from Dec 25, 1901 in the front. There is some wear and discoloration on the cover, spine, and pages, but this book is still in really good condition for its age. Book measures about 6.75" x 5.25".
