    A clothbound, illustrated edition of the infamous children's tale The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnet.

    The story takes place in Misselthwaite Manor which holds two mysteries: a strange unhappy crying in the night and a walled garden with a door locked and forgotten for ten years. On the day a robin shows Mary where the key lies buried, the magic begins.

    The author, Frances Hodgson Burnett, remembered such a garden from her own childhood and turned it fifty years later into one of the most popular of children's books of all time. In this evocation of a garden's enchantment is a heartfelt belief that the healing power of nature will transform children and adults alike.

    This Folio edition is illustrated by one of the most accomplished artists of the golden age of children's illustration, Charles Robinson.


    Bound in cloth, blocked in gold and green with a design based on the endpapers from the 1911 edition.
    Set in Bulmer.
    Eight original full-page colour paintings by Charles Robinson.
    Book Size: 9 inches x 6¼ inches, 288 pages.
