A girls' adventure story by the Irish woman L. T. [Elizabeth Thomasina] Meade, a prolific author who published at least 280 books, primarily targeted at the girl literature market. This charming story of four siblings who embark on a journey to find their parents. The adventure presents them with a series of challenges where they must balance and judge concepts of good and evil. A tale of morals, often likened to Pilgrim's Progress. This first edition binding is very attractive - brown cloth with gilt and sky blue decoration with bevelled edges. Plain endpapers. Six [including frontispiece] full page illustration plates and very attractive head and tail pieces to each chapter. Unfortunately the illustrator is not attributed as they are really rather nice. vii plus 191 pp plus Cassell publication section at rear. 22x17 cm. Corners worn; top/tail bumped. Small nick to cloth on upper board. Offset tanning to ffep and rfep. Dedication [from 1893] and second dedication [from 1963] both on ffep. from Otto
