Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1913. Hardcover first edition - Loosely based on Stratton-Porter's own childhood, Laddie is both a classic poor boy, rich girl romance as well as the story of "Little Sister," a child of nature who is allowed to freely roam the woods. Basis for the 1935 film of the same name. Illustrated by Herman Pfeifer with a frontispiece and three internal plates in color. Pale green screened illustrations on the endpapers and all of the preliminary pages. Frontispiece protected by tissue guard. 602 pp.
Condition: Very good in blue cloth with cream lettering and embossed lily design on front cover - very minor wear to ends of spine and corners, but overall a straight, tight and sturdy copy. An attractive vintage book.
