By Carlo Collodi, translated by Hezekiah Butterworth
Scarce first edition of the first PINOCCHIO printed in America.
Very good plus.
PINOCCHIO'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
The first translation into English of the Italian fairy tale was Mary Alice Murray's 1892 version for the London firm Unwin; some of the sheets were issued in the US under the Cassell imprint. This is the first edition actually printed in America and very scarce, especially in decent condition.
Boston: Jordan Marsh, (1898). 12mo Half blue pictorial cloth, patterned boards. Introduction by Hezekiah Butterworth. Illustrated with black-and-white chapter head and tailpieces. 212 pages. Edges and corners rubbed. Clean and tight.
