This vintage story book is simply subtitled as "A story for girls"
Written by Annie E. Armstrong, with J. Watson Davis (Illustrator)
no date on the book itself, but found it dated as 1903 in the reference book:
"The Annual American Catalog Cumulated 1900-1903. Containing a record, under author, title subject and series of the books published in the United States recorded from January 1st, 1900 to December 31, 1903 together with a directory of publishers"
The exterior has darkened a bit with time, however the interior pages are remarkably clean. Absolutely no mildewing.
pretty cover design, nice vivid colors of orange and celadon green on cream with black accents.
We know of some interior decorators who buy books for their cover's color, rather than content: this one is quite lovely with a unique colorway.
