Rare Book! Little Women, Part Second 1869/70

This is a rare find. We are proudly offering a very early edition of Little Women, Part Second, the sequel to the classic, Little Women. Untold thousands of girls have read these beloved works of Louisa May Alcott, and even more have enjoyed the movies based on this enduring tale. This is possibly a first edition. One of the front pages says, "Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year of 1869 by Louisa May Alcott", but the publisher's date is 1870. with no previous date given, so I don't know if it could possibly have been copyrighted, at the end of 1869, and published in 1870. If anyone has clarification on this, I would appreciate hearing about it. Several line drawn illustrations ane contained in its pages, and the dealer who owns this book believes that these were done by Miss Alcott's sister. I am not a book expert, but I would rate the condition of this volume as fair. It has brick red cloth boards, which have mildly frayed edges, and wear to all corners, the front being the worst. The back board has become detached, but could easily be repaired. The spine is quite faded, and the top & bottom are pretty seriously frayed. It has gilt lettering on the front & spine. The front is in decent condtion, the spine, as stated, quite faded. There is an ink mark on the front cover. The inside pages, though yellowed with age, seem to be securely attached to the binding. One of the front pages has the name of the original owner, Susan P. Boss written in pencil and stamped. Then just inside, facing the front cover someone wrote "pre high school ready list NLHS". So I guess it served time in a school library. There are some tape marks where the back board ajoins the spine, and on the inside of the front board. I will be happy to answer any questions, and supply further photos.
