Generally a very sound volume, bright gilt on front board and spine, slight rubbing on spine, otherwise a nice copy!

MacDonald wrote the story of little Diamond and North Wind's adventures around 1868, when he was forty-three. It originally appeared in "Serialization," or magazine format, during 1869 to 1870, when he edited the London children's periodical Good News For The Young, published by good friend and fellow Scot, Alexander Strahan. It appeared in monthly parts for one year, and realized first edition book status in 1871, actually available for Christmas sales in bookstores in 1870. Widely considered his masterpiece and best-known children's story, its story line and depth of thought afford it a unique status, since it created a new genre in children's literature. Copies of vintage editions in good condition can be scarce and costly!
