“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”

Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

 

Louisa May Alcott is one of the best-known American female authors of the 19th-century whose ‘Little Women’ is still one of the most popular works of juvenile and feminist fiction. Alcott’s letters and journals were edited and published by Ednah Cheney in 1889; however, Cheney notes in this work that many of the journals and letters were heavily edited or destroyed by Alcott before they were able to be read by the public.

 

This rare first edition meets the first printing point found at the bottom of p. 44 (‘with Goethe’).
