Famous English-born author of "The Secret Garden" and "Little Lord Fauntleroy", Frances Hodgson Burnett, wrote this children's book, "Editha's Burglar" after she had produced "Little Lord Fauntleroy", and it was copyrighted in 1888 by Jordan Marsh & Company. This later 1910 edition, published by H.M. Caldwell & Company, New York & Boston, has an advertisement for the Editha Series for Little Girls. Thirteen black and white charming illustrations by Henry Sandham help tell the story about a little girl from a Victorian household who is so thoughtful and caring that she talks a burglar into taking her own precious possessions instead of her parents things! The 5" x 7-1/2" sixty-seven page cloth cover book with a colorful paper paste-down of Editha on the front cover is complete and in good condition with slight bumps on the corners, a bit of wear at top and bottom of spine, and a small scrape at center bottom of front cover. There is reinforcement on some of the pages, a few thumbprints and some foxing throughout the book, but no crayon or other marks. Former owner's name and original price are written in pencil on the inside front cover. It comes wrapped in a clear Mylar cover for added protection. This is a delightful Victorian tale of a little girl who is almost too good to be true! Thank you for looking. Please email me if I can help you in any way.
