Apparently a sole survivor, this charming volume is a true orphan. Printed by the local newspaper in Green Bay, Wisconsin, it presumably was meant to be decorated by the purchaser. The hand-done illuminations in this copy are only partially completed, and it contains the dedication: “This little story is affectionately dedicated to all of my dear nieces and nephews, East and West, by their loving Aunt Abbie.” The wording, as published: “The Fairy Grotto” on front cover, “Christmas 1880” on rear cover.  Consider adopting this fairy tale today in honor of a loved one and start your Christmas shopping really early!
