Hildegarde's Home, by Laura E. Richards

              Dana Estes, 1892/1895 (?)                       

This volume has an unusual early monogram, which I have only seen on the "Hildegarde" books. The spine design also appears on some printings of Margaret Montfort (1898), another Richards title, although the cover lettering is quite different and shows no monogram.  This is one of eight Richards covers that Sacker designed for books by Richards. Note that "Toto", on the cover of The Joyous Story of Toto is holding a similar scroll !
