The Brown Owl; a fairy story
Cassell Publishing Company, New York, (The Children’s Library Volume One), 1892 - Frontispiece and plate by Ford Madox Brown Small 8vo Spine and some leaves a little darkened, but a nice copy; inscription on front free end-paper Harvey A1(n) With the exception of the publisher’s imprint at the foot of the spine this binding conforms in all general and particular respects to that of the first (T. Fisher Unwin) edition, also dated 1892 but evidently published in October 1891. At A1b Harvey mentions this edition without having seen it and describes the New York edition by the Frederick A. Stokes Company (q.v.) as the "First Edition, American issue". It is dated (in Roman numerals) 1891, comes in red, blue, or green cloth and the two plates are in different positions, neither used as a frontispiece. The author’s first book, being a fairy story which developed from tales told to his younger sister, Juliet, published through the efforts of his grandfather, Ford Madox Brown. Original white cloth with blue floral pattern repeated on end-papers and all edges First Edition, Second American Issue, from English sheets [Attributes: Hard Cover]
