May Flowers, by Louisa May Alcott

         Little, Brown,  1899
Although unsigned, this cover resembles, in several ways, other Sacker covers for Alcott books. In particular, the lettering on the cover and spine is almost identical to that for A Hole in the Wall.  There also exists a third version, with gilt lettering but a single-color central image. I am not certain which is the earliest version. A scarce dust jacket for this title is shown below.
