1871. Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. 4 pp preliminary undated ads. Original green cloth decorated in gilt. First American Edition, published about two weeks after the London one. This is Louisa May Alcott's sequel to her vastly-successful book for children LITTLE WOMEN (two volumes, 1868-1869), in which she had portrayed her own childhood in New England -- with herself as the model for "Jo," and her sisters May, Elizabeth and Anna as (respectively) "Amy," "Beth" and "Meg."~This copy is in green cloth (purple and terra-cotta were also available, without priority), and is of the first issue, with "now" the first word of line 5 on p. 146 (later changed to "Nan"), and with PINK AND WHITE TYRANNY listed in the ads as "nearly ready." This is a near-fine, bright copy (just a trace of wear at the spine ends, the volume slightly askew as usual). Blanck 167.
