Thaxter, Celia; edited by Sarah Orne Jewett
Stories and Poems for Children -- inscribed to her aunt by Sarah Orne Jewett
Houghton Mifflin, 1895. First printing. Hardcover. Green cloth gilt very good, posthumously publishing at least 13 stories not previously in book form. Very good copy. Inscribed by Jewett: "To L. M. P. with a Christmas wish and dear remembrance from S. O. J. 1895. Dear Aunty, once you would have read this book to me (and I love to remember the books you did read to me when I was 'little Sallie') and now you must read it to 'L. M.'" Also initialed at the end of Jewett's short preface. L. M. P. would be Lucretia M. Perry (1826-1896), married to William Gilman Perry, the brother of Sarah Orne Jewett's mother. P. 63 has some chipping and loss to fore-edge margin. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: rarebookstore [Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States]
