Little Men

By Alcott, Louisa May




Little Men, or Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott, first published in 1871. The novel reprises characters from Little Women and is considered by some the second book of an unofficial Little Women trilogy, which is completed with Alcott's 1886 novel Jo's Boys, and How They Turned Out: A Sequel to "Little Men". Little Men tells the story of Jo Bhaer and the children at Plumfield Estate School.

Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jo’s Boys.

Alcott, Louisa May

Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. First edition, first issue of the second book it Alcott's Little Women trilogy. Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, illustrated. In very good condition. A desirable example. In 1865, while serving as editor of Merry Museum, a Boston children's magazine, Alcott received encouragement to write a book for girls. Drawing on memories of childhood, the author portrayed the daily lives of Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg March-portraits of the four Alcott sisters. One of the most popular juvenile books ever published, "Little Women is an outstanding achievement of 19th-century American literature, and the first children's novel written in that country to have become an enduring classic." "It is one of the first fictional texts for children to convey the difficulties and anxieties of girlhood, and... suggests that becoming a 'little woman' is a learned and often fraught process, not an instinctual or natural condition of female development" (Foster & Simon, 87). Published in 1871, Little Men recounts six months in the life of the students at Plumfield, a school run by German Professor Friedrich and Mrs. Josephine Bhaer. The idea of the school was first suggested at the very end of Little Women, Part Two when adult Jo inherited the estate from her late Aunt March.

Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys

ALCOTT, Louisa May

Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. Hardcover. 16mo. Terra cotta pebble-grained cloth with blind-embossed rules and gilt lettering. (4pp preliminary ads), 376pp. Tissue-guarded frontispiece, 3 full-page illustrations. Very good. Mildest of edgewear; text block faintly age toned, with occasional spotting and foxing. A tight, attractive first edition of this "Little Women" sequel -- the variant issue, with the "Nearly Ready" advertisement for H.B. Stowe's "Pink and White Tyranny." Discreet ex-library of the interesting sort, with only a super-faint "A" in barely visible white at tail of spine and on the front flyleaf the quaint late 19th century bookplate of the Hanson Library Association" from what's now the Boston suburb of Hanson. Also of interest is the archival decorative-edged bookplate on rear pastedown boldly signewd and inscribed in black fineline by Madeleine B. Stern (1912-2007), an important Alcott scholar, author of a popular 1950 biography of Alcott and discoverer of some previously-unknown pseudonymously-published tales by Alcott which Stern then published. A lovely copy with unusual add-on. BAL 167.
