Quarto [29 cm] Rust colored cloth covered boards with a blind stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped title and blind stamped floral and decorative designs on the front cover. Very good. The edges of the covers are very slightly bumped, rubbed and darkened. The endsheets are very lightly soiled. The bottom right corner of one of the pages is creased. There is a 2 inch long closed tear in the bottom margin of this page as well. The dust jacket is in poor condition. The majority of the top half of the front panel is absent. The jacket is mildly soiled and rubbed. Besides the major loss from the front panel, there are numerous other losses from the edges. There are also a couple of long closed tears in the panels.


"The American Girl has found no more facile pencil than that wielded by Mr. Harrison Fisher. He has succeeded in creating a beautiful type distinctly his own."- Ladies' Home Journal, 1910
