Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys.
Boston: Roberts Brothers,, 1871. Octavo. Original green sand-grain cloth, covers blocked in blind with thick and thin rule, front cover with central lettering enclosed by oval Greek key in gilt, brown coated endpapers. Housed in a green cloth chemise and quarter green morocco slipcase (spine a little rubbed). Frontispiece with tissue guard and 3 plates. Contemporary gift inscription to initial blank. From the library of Katharine de Berkeley Parsons of the New York dynasty, with her book label to the front pastedown. Extremities faintly rubbed, title page partially detached. An excellent copy. First US edition, first issue, with the signature "1" on the first page of text and the four pages of adverts at the front. Blanck notes that the edition occurs both with and without the signature mark, that no sequence is established but that the reprint of 1872 does not have the mark present, implying that this may be the primary state. The second book in the trilogy begun with Little Women (1868?-9) and completed by Jo's Boys, and How They Turned Out (1886), this edition was published on 1 June 1871, preceded by the London edition published by Sampson Low, Son & Marston on 15 May.
