A beautiful hardcover edition collection of illustrated fairy stories from Louisa May Alcott-the author who brought us Little Women. Originally published in 1854, this collection of fables was inspired by Louisa's time spent in the woods around Walden Pond-a spot endearingly named "Fairyland" by Walden's own Henry David Thoreau.
Young Louisa collected these fairy fables into a volume dedicated to her friend Ellen Emerson, the daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson. This volume-published under the title, Flower Fables-was Louisa's first published book. Applewood Books has partnered with Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House to publish this commemorative hardcover edition on the 150th anniversary of its first publication.
