Publisher's Description

The classic trilogy, in a hardcover collector's edition complete with the original illustrations. From the incidents of her own remarkable childhood, Louisa May Alcott fashioned a trilogy of novels that catapulted her to fame and fortune and that remain among the most beloved works in all of American literature. Here, in an authoritative single-volume edition, is the complete series. In Little Women, set in New England during the Civil War, Alcott introduces the unforgettable March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. Little Men follows Jo, now married, into adulthood, as she finds herself the caretaker of a houseful of rambunctious children at Plumfield School. Jo’s Boys returns to Plumfield a decade later; now grown, Jo’s children recount adventures of their own.

Editorial Reviews

"The Library of America has done a great service to Alcott lovers and nineteenth-century literature scholars alike by bringing Louisa May Alcott's March family trilogy together in a single, beautifully crafted volume. Insightfully edited by the incomparable Elaine Showalter, this is the best combined presentation of Little Women, Little Men, and Jo's Boys that we could possibly have asked for." — John Matteson, author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning Eden's Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Father

    I thought it was going to be a boxed set of three books, but it was three books combined into one book smaller than I expected one of the books to be. I slit the plastic wrapping just enough to look at the print and the font was too small for me to read so I wasn't going to give it to my granddaughter. I sent it back for a refund.
