The Little House

New York: George H. Doran Company, 1914.

Presentation copy signed by Helen S. Woodruff and seven other noteworthy female authors who were hostesses at a luncheon given on February 1, 1918: mystery writer Mary Robert Rinehart, famous children's authors Frances Hodgson Burnett and Kate Douglas Wiggin, Maria Thompson Daviess, playwright Eleanor Gates, Alice Hegan Rice, and one other female author. Woodruff has additionally inscribed the title page to the former owner. An Alabaman, her novels are forgotten now; she notably donated all profits from them to charity.

Good only with gutters colored-in with ink, faint "X" written on spine, slight lean, light wear and dust-soiling, lacking dust jacket.
