Edition: First edition, second printing

Seller ID: 062515

Condition: Very Good +


This was MacDonald's first published story.This copy contains the bookplate of Christopher Peter MacDonald. It is the same bookplate that George MacDonald used except it has Christopher Peter MacDonald at the bottom. We think it likely that he is a grandson of George MacDonald but do not know for sure.This book has all the points of the first edition called for in Shaberman except that the advertisements in the back are dated July, 1859, not Sept. 1858 so we presume this is a second printing. Online we have found one copy with the 1859 ads, one copy with no ads, and one copy with 1858 ads. ... View more info

The story "The Light Princess" was first published in 1864 in the book Adela Cathcart. This is a first edition of the first book where Light Princess was the title story.
