The first book to be released on the life of Louisa May Alcott was Ednah Dow Cheney’s Louisa May Alcott, The Children’s Friend. A sweet and romanticized account of Louisa’s life, this book was geared for the countless fans of Little Women and children of all ages. Cheney, a longtime friend of the family (who had been sweet on Bronson) was entrusted with Louisa’s letters and journals which she edited and released in her adult version of Louisa’s life known as Louisa May Alcott, Her Life, Letters and Journals.
Louisa May Alcott, The Children’s Friend was released in 1888, the same year that Louisa died. I was lucky enough to acquire an original copy (see previous post) from The Barrow in Concord and so can share sample pages from the book with you:
