First edition of this scarce and curious book. A note at the beginning states that readers of the Ladies Home Journal are permitted to mount one performance at no cost so long as credit is given in the program to Alcott's heirs and the magazine (the primary publisher noted on the title page-Curtis-also published The Ladies Home Journal); professional performances, however, are "forbidden." With 14 original illustrations by Reginald Birch, who is cited on the title page as the illustrator of "Little Lord Faunterloy."
