A GREAT CLASSIC

BURNETT, Frances Hodgson (author). Charles ROBINSON (illustrator). The Secret Garden. London; William Heinemann. 1911.

Large square 8vo.; publisher's mid-green cloth pictorially blocked in gilt to upper cover, spine elaborately and decoratively gilt, top edges green, pictorial endpapers, also printed in green; pp. [iv], v-vii + [i] + 306 + [6], publisher's catalogue; pictorial title-page in red and black, frontispiece in colours and 7 other fine coloured plates by Charles Robinson guarded by captioned tissues; an unusually attractive example of a very scarce book, spine darkened but gilt bright, bruising but no splitting to spine ends, tiny knocks to forecorners of upper board; internally very good and clean with light dusting and faint toning to fore-, and lower, edges of book block, a weak early ownership inscription partially erased, by fading, to front free endpaper, the neat and small blind-stamp of Jarrold & Sons (publisher and bookseller) to the same, internally clean and fresh with one or two incidental and insignificant marks.
First edition of this perennially popular children's classic.
