Everyone knows how much I adore everything that Louisa May Alcott has written.
I have come across many different versions of Little Women,
but this one is a sure rare find. Published in 1947, the illustrations in this book are gorgeous.
The quality in the papers that they used in this book let you know this edition was something really special.
Illustrated by Louis Jambor, this book has the most incredible illustrations, and ones that I have not seen before.
"The special contents of this edition are copyrighted, 1947 by Gorsset & Dunlap, Inc. printed by Kingsport press. Inc., Kingsport, Tennessee."
I placed it in my etsy shop for the love of old books today.
For your listening pleasure, here is the radio program of Little Women starring June Allison and many other amazing actors.
