The Secret Garden

By Burnett, Frances Hodgson




Frances Hodgson Burnetts' timeless tale The Secret Garden introduces us to a sour little girl. Mary Lennox is NOT a pleasure to be around. In fact, she yells like a little princess, can't make friends, and simply despises everything.

She remains quite contrary until she helps her garden grow - and finds someone worse off than herself to bring along for the ride.  Closed off in a creepy manor house on the Yorkshire moors, how can children expect to grow towards the light?

The Secret Garden

BURNETT FRANCES HODGSON

London: Heinemann, 1911. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. First UK Edition First Impression. First edition in book form and the first Charles Robinson edition, first printing. Publisher's original green cloth with gilt titles and decoration to the upper board and spine, in the original D/W (priced 6/- net to the spine (as called for). The first issue of the D/W can be identified by the publication date on the front panel (1911) and the price of 6/- to the spine. Illustrated with 8 full page colour plates by Charles Robinson. An attractive very good or better copy, the binding clean and the gilt very bright. There is a 1911 previous owner's ink inscription to the blank reverse of the front free endpaper and a little spotting to the margins and page edges. Complete with the original first issue pictorial D/W which is rubbed and nicked but is clean and attractive. There are several small chips to the spine tips and to the top edge of the upper and lower panels not affecting the lettering or illustration. Housed in a custom-made bespoke quarter black morocco solander case. [Note: The Secret Garden is widely regarded as one of the most satisfying children's books ever written. The secret of the book's success and enduring popularity is not just the writer's knack for story-telling but her instinctive knowledge of child psychology reflected in her portrait of how Mary Lennox and her friends bloom themselves as they tend their garden and turn it into a small paradise in the middle of the bleak Yorkshire landscape].

The Secret Garden.

BURNETT, Frances Hodgson.

London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt with pink onlaid morocco flower pieces, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. With 8 colour illustrations by Charles Robinson. A fine copy. First edition in book-form, first impression. The Secret Garden was first serialized, starting in autumn 1910, in The American Magazine, a publication aimed at adults. The entire novel was first published in the present book-form in the summer of 1911 by Heinemann in London, and simultaneously in the US by M. B. Kork. The US edition was illustrated by M. B. Kork, whereas the English edition has illustrations by the prolific illustrator Charles Robinson, whose younger brothers Thomas Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson also became illustrators. Born in Manchester, England, Burnett moved several times back and forth between England and America, before adopting US citizenship in 1905. The novel was mainly written in Buile Hill Park while visiting Manchester in 1904, but published while she was living in Plandome Manor, New York. During her lifetime her rags-to-riches story Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886) was a publishing sensation, although over the years The Secret Garden has retained the popularity that Little Lord Fauntleroy has lost.

William Heinemann, London, 1911. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/No Jacket. Robinson, Charles. 306 pages (complete). First edition. Please note that the boards are not the original boards (although they are of the same colour). A gift inscription on the half-title page (dated: Spitel am Semmering, August 1913). Ownership stamp on the titlepage. The boards are agreeably benign. They have light wear to edges and corners from shelving, some light scuffing. The spine area has sunning discolouration. They are steady and sound. The contents are most pleasing. The colour plates are bright, fresh, lively. The tissue guards are exceptionally neat, clean. The pages are very clean, very clear, most convivial, most generous, inviting - as if barely handled throughout! fk
