The Secret Garden
Author: Frances Hodgson Barnett
BURNETT, Frances Hodgson. The Secret Garden. NY: Frederick A. Stokes . 12mo, [x] 375pp. Blue cloth decoratively stamped in blind and gilt. Spine ends and corners slightly rubbed, rear board a tad soiled, else a remarkably clean, bright copy.
First edition. Burnett’s beloved novel about an orphaned girl who discovers a walled-in garden on her uncle’s property. The basis for numerous adaptations on film and television, this novel has enchanted readers for over a century! Amazingly, when first published, this title was received as just “a new book” by the author of A Little Princess and only achieved it’s classic status when the children who read it grew up to share it with their children.
