In December 1854, Flower Fables became Louisa May Alcott's first published work, a series of fairy stories written years earlier for Ellen Emerson, daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson. This new printing, in conjunction with Orchard House, the home of the Little Women, commemorates the 150th anniversary of its original publication. The pages of this edition are reproduced from the Henry Altemus edition published in Philadelphia in 1898. Full of whimsy and 34 illustrations. Hardcover.
