Antique Flower Fables book by Louisa May Alcott

$100.00

Rare antique Flower Fables book by Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women. This is a beautiful edition with red rose flowers and an image of a woman wearing a hat glued to the cover. Published by Hurst & Co probably in the early 1900s.

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. 

Due to its age, there is some wear and discoloration/staining on the cover, spine, and pages due to age. There are also a few pages at the beginning detached from the book (pictured) and a couple of corners torn out. The back cover is starting to loosen a little bit, but is still attached. Book measures about 7.5" x 5".
