Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1890. Hardcover. Good - / No Dustjacket. Item #074255
Clean pages except for a brief gift inscription on a blank leaf preceding the half-title, modest foxing to preliminaries and final leaves, and toning at edges; the binding is quite relaxed, with net showing at hinges and stitching visible between signatures, but all leaves are present and attached. The brown cloth cover has fraying at corners and spine ends, surface wear along verticals and patchy scuffs front and back, and a bump to the bottom left rear corner, with mild attenuation of gilt decoration at spine, but remains striking, with the same design as this publisher's uniform edition of Alcott's works.
