Description

A charming abridged and illustrated facsimile edition of one of the most popular and widely read novels of all time, coinciding with the 150th anniversary of its publication.

Louisa May Alcott’s beloved children’s novel Little Women is one of the classics of American literature. The novel follows the lives of the March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy and details their passage from childhood to womanhood during the years of the American Civil War. The story was loosely based on Alcott and her sisters’ own experiences of growing up in Concord, Massachusetts. The book became an immediate roaring success when it was published on 30 September 1868. The first 2,000 copies sold out at once and it has never been out of print since. This 150th-anniversary facsimile edition faithfully reproduces an abridged version of the book published in 1910. It presents the story in an easy-to-read format for children, with illustrations by the Australian artist Norman Little.

Louisa May Alcott (1832–88) was an American novelist and poet, best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo’s Boys (1886). W. Dingwall Fordyce was the author of the adventure novels for children Our Secret Society, The Gun-Runners, In Search of Gold and The Jewelled Lizard, among other books. He also wrote abridged versions of classic novels, including Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Tanglewood Tales and Louisa M. Alcott’s Little Women. Norman Little (1883–1917) was an Australian artist and illustrator. He illustrated several books, including The Gateway to Tennyson and Faust and Marguerite, and produced many drawings, watercolours, and oil paintings of rural and military life. One of his paintings is held by the National Army Museum. He served with the Royal Fusiliers 11th Batallion as a lieutenant, and was killed in action in 1917.
