by Louisa May Alcott
Illustrated by Tasha Tudor
New York: World Publishing Co., 1969.
Generations of readers young & old have loved “Little Women.” A standard in any home library, this is a special copy.
This copy features the illustrations by Tasha Tudor, one of the premier illustrators of the 20th century. Her paintings & drawings have legions of fans, won her the Caldecott Medal among others, and are both quaint and touching.
This is a first printing of this illustrated edition, with the full number line (see photo.) Tasha Tudor has inscribed the front endpaper and dated it 1981. Having an original signature from one of the world’s most renowned artists/illustrators makes this quite collectible as well as enjoyable.
Book and jacket are in very good condition. The book has a previous owner’s inscription on the front endpaper. The DJ has a small stain near the title on the front panel; toning to spine panel; front flap clipped with inked-in price. The book is a hardcover bound in red cloth boards, modest bumping to corners. A very nice copy overall.
Measures 9-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and has 544 pages.
