Reader's note

Looking for beautiful vintage books to stand out on your bookshelf? This decoratively covered edition of An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott would be a charming addition to any home library, adding a pop of red to the room.

“Young men often laugh at the sensible girls whom they secretly respect, and affect to admire the silly ones whom they secretly despise, because earnestness, intelligence, and womanly dignity are not the fashion.”

The book revolves around Polly Milton, the old-fashioned girl of the title, who visits the wealthy family of her friend Fanny Shaw in the city and is overwhelmed by their fashionable life they lead and disturbed to see how the family members fail to understand one another and demonstrate little affection. She is largely content to remain on the fringes of their social life but exerts a powerful influence over their emotional lives and family relations. A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
