From Kate’s Bookshelf: First Edition

Super special post here today! Really, there is no way for me to properly articulate this news, so I’m just going to skip all the flowery descriptions and just get to the good stuff- I am the proud owner of a 1869 FIRST EDITION of Lousia May Alcott’s “Little Women, Part Second”!!!! 

“Little Women” is my all time favorite novel. I’ve worn out copy after copy of the book over the years; I sincerely have no idea how many times I’ve seen the 1994 film. I’ve grown up with Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy. And I now, through the overwhelming generosity of my parents, have the pleasure to care for this beautiful edition of the novel’s second half.

Hope you’ve  enjoyed exploring some of the book with me! Have a great Monday!

♥ Kate


  1. I’d leave a comment, but I’m just about going blind from jealousy! ;D

  2. The art work is exquisite!

  3. Oh that’s so lovely, especially with the illustrations.
    I love that story.

    Hi Kate, I would love to use your first image for a social media post about Louisa May Alcott four Museum of the Bible. Let me know if you would be okay with that.
