Bright Days, or, Herbert and Meggy

Boston: D. Lothrop and Company, [n.d., circa 1882]. First thus. Scarce with only four copies located on Worldcat at cataloging.

This copy is from the Fern Glen Series and carries a different title, but its contents almost exactly mirror "A Children's Year" which was first published in London in 1847. OCLC 10109609 reflects a New York printing also in 1847. However, the Fern Glen Series was largely produced in the 1870s and the instant binding and catalog mentioning an 1882 release largely confirms that to be the case, perhaps utilizing old sheets with a new title and binding to reinvigorate a weak seller.

12mo. 8, 9-257pp., + 15 page catalogue. Not in Woodring. NCBEL III, 1286 for the English title.
Very good in publisher's green cloth boards with blind and gilt stamping, with some wear to spine and slight cocking. Item #42

Price: $100.00
