Little Lord Fauntleroy: Unabridged and Illustrated
With numerous Illustrations by Reginald Birch
Little Cedric Errol is a poor American boy who is told he is the sole heir to a wealthy British earldom and thus becomes Lord Fauntleroy.
His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, intends to teach the boy to become an aristocrat, but Ceddie inadvertently teaches his grandfather compassion and social justice, and the artless simplicity and motherly love of Cedric's mother warms the old man's heart.
Unabridged edition, with numerous illustrations by Reginald Bathurst Birch.
