George MacDonald's  full-length children's story had it's first appearance in Serialization format under the title "A Double Story" in Good Things Magazine, December 1874 to July 1875, in  which he was the editor for Strahan.  It would then be issued a year later in the US by Dodd*Mead. MacDonald was at the height of his powers as England's leading children's storyteller and certainly most beloved children's author. It was published following his highly successful American tour a couple years before. Herein his powers were seldom matched, leaving unforgettable images in this masterful narrative. Generally a sound volume, in about Good condition, remarkable for a 143 year young survivor. Rare in this format, it's increasingly difficult to find a first in decent condition! A rare opportunity to own this cherished volume from Grandfather's Canon!
