Such a lovely Victorian lady adorns the cover of "A Girl in Ten Thousand" by L.T. Meade. Meade was the pseudonym for Elizabeth Thomasina Meade Smith who began her career at 17 and wrote many girls' stories, writing over 300 books in her lifetime. The frontispiece, I believe, is a picture of Meade reading one of her books to some eager children. The cover illustration is by F. Earl Christy who was well known for his "All-American" college girl illustrations.

The book itself has no copyright, but the cover picture is copyrighted 1909, and a pencil inscription in the front is dated 1916. Measures 5.25" by 7.75". 184 pages. The binding is a little weak in some places in the inside and the outside binding is somewhat faded. The cover illustration has some wrinkling, minor discoloration, and a tiny rip.
